The Olive Oil Mafia

60 Minutes did an excellent expose on the seedy underbelly of the counterfeit olive oil market. Take a look, it is very well done! And one way to make sure you are getting only the best extra virgin olive oil is to look for the California Olive Oil Council seal on the bottle. This year it shows a grey “2015” on a yellow background. They taste each submitted oil and only those that pass both sensory and chemistry testing are certified as “Extra Virgin”
