Olive Oil in the U.S., 3rd Edition

Olive oil has long had a treasured place in the minds and hearts of the many civilizations and cultures throughout the Mediterranean. The Greek poet Homer referred to it as “liquid gold.” But today, it is a premium global commodity treasured on all continents partly for its historical mystique but predominantly for its healthful benefits and seemingly endless culinary uses. In the United States, it is nearing staple status in America’s kitchens. It is also cultivated in more countries throughout the world than ever before. In fact, olive oil may do for California over the next couple of decades what wine did for the state in the latter half of the twentieth century. But, can the U.S. market sustain major domestic production and how much more olive oil can Americans consume? ( Olive Oil in the U.S., 3rd Edition - Business Market Reports )
