2024 NAOOA Olive Oil Testing Program
The North American Olive Oil Association (NAOOA), whose members represent over half the olive oil sold in the United States, will commission the nation's most comprehensive, rigorous olive oil testing study to date. This study's aim is to create a new benchmark for olive oil testing, further strengthening the quality of olive oil industry wide.
The testing program will begin sampling in early 2024 to coincide with the first major shipments of olive oil from the most recent northern hemisphere growing season. The study is being announced in advance in part to deter any potential misconduct by bad actors seeking to capitalize on current market conditions. For any oil that fails to meet authenticity standards, the NAOOA intends to notify the responsible parties and take any responsive actions deemed appropriate under the circumstances, up to and including notification of government authorities and/or initiating direct legal action.
