NAOOA for the Trade

The North American Olive Oil Association is a trade association that promotes the consumption of olive oil and seeks government enforcement of quality and labeling requirements for olive oil. The NAOOA's two primary programs are two industry-wide quality control programs and a public relations program.

The NAOOA keeps you informed on issues relating to the olive oil industry through bulletins, its monthly update and its web site.
NAOOA conducts two meetings per year at which a great deal of industry statistics and other information is distributed.
The NAOOA works on the olive oil industry's behalf on legislative and regulatory issues.
Membership in the NAOOA gives your company increased recognition in the U.S. food trade and gives your company membership in the Association of Food Industries, a 100-year-old trade association representing the U.S. food import industry. NAOOA members receive all the benefits of membership in AFI. NAOOA members can take advantage of AFl's arbitration service for the resolution of commercial disputes.
