This paper reviews the consequences of revolutionising processing in the olive oil industry. It compares the environmental impacts of old and new processes, highlighting the decrease in water consumption. An analysis of the socio-economic consequences of this transition, with particular emphasis on Spain, is presented. The paper concludes by proposing this evolution as a greening of the industry.
