The olive mill suggested was 5 years old, so adding that man_made tag would be on top of a few other tags. 

The big thing is if it is an industrial facility. 

If the factory is big enough / clear enough to see the land used by the factory and it's related things (parking lots, storage sheds) make an area for it and tag it as landuse=industrial. 

Outline the big buildings and tag as building=industrial. Add the office (building=office) and other small buildings (building=yes) if they are there or separate.   Put the man_made=olive_mill (or whatever that tag was) on the landuse area, along with the factory's name, address, and contact info.  Add any building references (Building A, #2 ) to the buildings themselves (ref=a or ref=2). 

Good luck in OSM!
