The Basics of Olive Oil

The Basics of Olive Oil

In 2018, True Food TV traveled to Spain to film the 2019 olive harvest with the logistics and financial support of  NAOOA and Olive Oils of Spain.  True Food TV is the producer of the web's most watched series dedicated to food and agriculture education with over 450,000 subscribers & 36 million views on YouTube.  Their video "Extra Virgin: How is it Made" premiered on YouTube in April 2020, and less than one year later, the videos registered 1 million views.

To celebrate the success, the NAOOA hosted a live video watch party webinar on April 8, 2021.  American food journalist Nicole Jolly, who is a creator, scriptwriter and presenter for True Food TV and Joseph R. Profaci, NAOOA’s executive director provided insights about the production and supplemented the information in the videos with additional background and details relating key topics about olive oil. The webinar lasted about 75 minutes and was also well attended and well received. Many who attended or watched it later on YouTube commented on how informative they found it. (You can watch the entire webinar here.)

From the feedback we received, and to make the webinar more accessible, we have divided the webinar into seven short segments by topic, which we are calling the “Basics of Olive Oil.”
