Depends on what you are tagging ...

The land area the factory occupies can be tagged landuse=industrial or 
commercial depend on how you see it

The building itself can be tagged building=factory - either as an area 
or a single point (node).

You can then add other tags (I call these subtags) for detail
and so on

then there is the proposal for industrial/factory 

You could then add 'new' tags such as 'factory=olive_oil'.
  Rules - use lower case only, try to match any existing tag use or 
proposals and then add your use to the wiki documents.

Good luck.. keep asking questions. The OSM wiki is a reasonable source 
of information.
