Authentic extra virgin olive oil supplier w/o private label service - know how?

20/10/2017

Extra virgin olive oil is undoubtedly the world’s healthiest fat that is widely used as an important ingredient in various cuisines. It has a low content of saturated fat and a high percentage of omega-3 fatty acids and oleic acid that promote heart health. Unlike seed and vegetable oils that do not have any health benefit, extra virgin olive oil is a rich source of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents called polyphenols, which promote cardiovascular function. It demonstrates anti-cancer properties too. It has a profound impact on the European cuisine, which has shaped the American cuisine. The very taste of extra virgin olive oil will enchant your senses. It’s rich, fresh, and wholesome.

Unfortunately, the extra virgin olive oil that we consume is impure and the outcome of fraud and adulteration. Today, fake food is a $50 billion annual business and surprisingly, you will find a lot of information about olive oil scam in scholarly articles written between 1980 and 2010. A study conducted by the University of California–Davis Olive Center in 2010 found that 69 percent of the imported oils and 10 percent of California oils that were labeled as “extra virgin” did not meet the legal standard, which is primarily determined through lab testing and sensory testing.

At L&P Global B.V., we put additional focus on purity and quality as we are committed to providing the world with authentic extra virgin olive oil that is fully sourced from Spain, the largest producer of olive oil in the world. We have adopted a no-compromise attitude when it comes to delivering the best quality extra virgin olive oil to our customers.

Good quality extra virgin oil comes at a price, which is not solely expressed in terms of its monetary value, but also in terms of the yield, the labour needed, and the time that it takes to produce the targeted yield. You will be surprised to know that you can extract 12 % of extra virgin olive oil from 1 kg of olive. Simply put, you will get just 120 grams of extra virgin olive oil from 1000 grams of olive. Extra virgin olive oil is produced in low quantities and most of what we find in the market are adulterated oils that are fraudulently sold as “extra virgin olive oil”.

Again, some varieties of olives have lower quality standards and needless to mention, it is rather difficult to produce high-quality output from low quality raw materials. It turns out to be an expensive affair when producers have to generate olive oil of standard quality from sub-standard olives. The output will never have the fine taste and smell of pure extra virgin olive oil, the production will be a time-consuming and costly process, the yield will be typically lower, and the overall cost of production will force the producer to set a high price for the final product. This means, even if you are paying a premium price for something which you are believing to be “high-quality”, you are actually paying for a low-quality oil that, in no way, can be considered as “extra virgin” olive oil.


The best way to get the best quality oil is by using the best quality olives. This will involve a cheaper production process and the producer will be able to set a competitive price. This is what drives our ideology at L&P Global B.V. We do not compromise on our quality and this is what makes us one of the most reliable olive oil suppliers in Spain. Our clients often request us for better prices and we understated that such negotiations may come at the cost of quality and authenticity. We are honest in what we do and we strongly condemn adulteration practices that may involve measures such as oil-mixing or using bad quality olives. We are driven by the ideology of passing the best products to the end-users and we truly want the world to know the real taste and flavour of one of the wonder foods of the world.
