Product of where? And does it matter?
Bulk olive oil buyers around the country are forced to answer this question for themselves as they’re procuring oil. Depending on your intended use for the oil and who you ask, you’ll find many different answers.
Here’s Our Opinion
In the manufacturing realm, the intended use for olive oil is most often an ingredient. It goes into a final product and slight differences in taste and color are usually undetectable. The grade of olive oil is the biggest factor that affects taste and color. So, if the quality and grade is similar across a few different countries of origin, it’s likely that more than one variety could work for you.
