Cold press abstraction is one of the mechanical extraction methods, which requires relatively less energy than other oil extraction methods. Cold-pressed oils are manufactured naturally or extracted by crushing sun-dried oil seeds or nuts such as coconut, sesame, castor, groundnut, sunflower, mustard, or olive at room temperature. Being a traditional oil extraction method, it does not involve any additional elements, preservatives, or heat, thereby retaining the original nutritional values.
The Middle East & Africa Cold Pressed Oil Market is projected to grow at a CAGR of around 4.0% during the forecast period, i.e., 2023-28. Such considerable market ascension primarily attributes to the rising consumer consciousness relating to holistic well-being owing to the growing health and fitness awareness digital campaigns across the region. As such, consumers are constantly looking for products that may promote better health, which, in turn, has compelled food brands to bring more transparent products, going past ingredients, free-from status, and nutritional levels. Such rising propensity has furthered the sales of cold-pressed oils, thereby bolstering the market revenue during the forecast period.

Moreover, unlike hot-pressed, these oils downsize the adverse effects of high temperature and exhibit more enriching properties than refined oils as they are free from cholesterol or undesired solvent residues, promoting a healthy lifestyle.
