IOF – International Olive Foundation has been founded to protect the international standard for extra virgin olive oil. This is necessary and not negotiable, because we all know that there have been a lot of quality and authenticity scandals on olive oil in the past. Consumers all over the world are aware that the words “extra virgin” are not a guarantee for quality anymore. On the contrary they are even more suspicious when facing a buying decision about olive oil. IOF – International Olive Foundation with your donation and together with the cooperation with authorities of producing and consuming countries is in charge to rehabilitate the standard “extra virgin” for olive oil. IOF – International Olive Foundation will give to the real extra virgin olive oil a fair chance to compete in the market. Last but not least IOF – International Olive Foundation with its activities protects consumers. Worldwide.
