Olive Oil Testing by IOC-Certified Labs & Panels

The NAOOA is pleased to now offer sample testing coordination services to non-members. To ensure your olive oil is the “real deal," test it for compliance with the International Olive Council (IOC) standards. The IOC, based in Madrid, Spain, was founded in 1959 and sets and maintains olive oil grade standards and test methods for global trade.

As the only trade group in the U.S. arranging comprehensive authenticity testing of all grades of olive oil, the NAOOA can assist industry stakeholders in obtaining independent, IOC-Certified analysis of olive oils.

For one simple flat-rate fee per sample, the NAOOA will arrange:

  • Full IOC-compliance testing for authenticity and quality, including sensory evaluation for extra virgin olive oils
  • Packaging materials and sample jars
  • Shipping and handling, including customs paperwork and duties
