A True California Olive Oil Experience

80% of Italian olive oil sold on grocery store shelves is fake.

Many olive oils on the market today claim to be Italian and extra virgin but are neither. To give consumers confidence they are purchasing 100% extra virgin olive oil, our extra virgin olive oils carry the California Olive Oil Council seal.

When you purchase olive oil with the COOC Seal of Certification, you know you are buying the best extra virgin olive oil made in California.

Why Extra Virgin?

“Extra Virgin” is the highest grade an oil may receive. 

International standards dictate that olive oil meets both chemical and sensory standards to be sold as extra virgin.

The oil’s chemistry, tested in a laboratory, meets or exceeds specific parameters that indicate the careful handling and storage of the olives and oil. No chemicals or extreme heat may be used during the extraction process.

“Extra Virgin” also denotes that the oil is free of defects of flavor or odor. This is evaluated by a trained sensory panel and cannot be detected by laboratory tests.

Unfortunately, in the U.S., many of the oils which are labeled as extra virgin are not required to undergo any such testing. For this reason, in 1998 the California Olive Oil Council established its Seal Certification Program. Under this program, all COOC member producers must comply with the certification process following each harvest to ensure their oil meets the criteria to qualify as extra virgin grade.
