According to Richard Allen, Chairman of the SA Olive Industry, it was a challenging year for the industry “due to a poor harvest that saw considerably lower yields... this was experienced by all olive-growing countries around the world this year.


“Added to this, there were other daily challenges such as loadshedding, so it’s even more commendable that our local Extra Virgin Olive Oil producers continue to deliver... the kind of quality that earns them the highest international accolades, here and around the world.”


The SA Olive CTC seal guarantees that the producer is committed to compliance in quality olive oil production. It confirms that the EVOO is 100% locally (South African) produced and is authentic Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
