Our History ..
It was in 1994, with the opening up of the olive oil export sector to private companies in Tunisia that Mr. Tahar Ben Aissa, a businessperson and trader mostly
for export, got involved in the olive oil export sector.
At the time, Tunisian extra virgin olive oil was sold only in bulk to Italian and Spanish packaging companies, who would package it and sell it to various international markets around the world. The same applied to « lampante » oilve oils, which were sold unrefined and later refined in Italy and Spain. The valorization of olive oils was done overseas.
Having seen a profitable investment opportunity for his business and for the Tunisian olive oil sector, Mr. Ben Aissa decided to invest in a refinery and a large capacity packaging plant.
The location of the plant in Jbel Oust, historically called/known as Cheylus near the olive fields, the port of Rades and the capital city Tunis. This was an important investment, requiring time, funding and knowledge, Mr. Ben Aissa dedicated all his energy, time and knowledge and finances to this.
Since all good deeds are rewarded, today SHEYLUS GROUP is a well-established company, dealing with some of the most prestigious actors in the olive oil sector, with a qualified team, modern technologies and various certifications.
