How to spot an organic extra virgin olive oil?

June 08, 2020

Organic olive oil production means higher costs for the producers, but healthier extra virgin olive oil for you.

Unfortunately, the difference between organic and conventional extra virgin olive oils is not detectable by its taste or odour. You need to rely on organic olive oils requirements by the EU confirming that olive oil is made according to the regulations.

According to strict rules, every organic olive oil should display on the label either the word BIO or ORGANIC, the country icon (HR as per Croatia) and organic logo.

All organic extra virgin olive oils are produced with organic (natural) processes following those stringent EU regulations. Olives have been cultivated without chemical-synthetic fertilizers, pesticides or soil herbicides. The whole process from growing olives to olive bottling is complying with the organic farming regulation.
