How To Calculate or Convert The Price / Weight Of Olive Oil

Posted by Hannah Broaddus

Different suppliers -- whether they're located in the US or around in the world -- price oil differently. Sometimes it is priced per pound, per kilogram, per liter, per metric ton, or per gallon. It can be confusing to get pricing from so many different suppliers for bulk oils.

This means that as a buyer, you'll need to be prepared to convert both english to metric values AND volume to weight. Of course to do the latter, it depends on the density of the material (in this case olive oil).

To help avoid the confusion, we've written some conversion calculations you can follow rather easily.

Consider this list a set of conversion standards, so that you can compare all of your numbers quickly and simply. This will help know exactly how much oil you're buying and allow you to evaluate prices apples to apples.
