Therefore, the price of olive oil is fixed through quite a complex but transparent system, because there are information systems which allow you to know the price of the Extra Virgin Olive Oil, such as Poolred in Spain or Ismea in Italy. These systems can be accessed by anyone and the bulk trade transactions of olive oil are shown instantly in their own web pages. Thus, buyers, distributors or producers are able to know in real time about the average price of the different types of olive oil, which is helpful to set margins in negotiations.
However, this product is subject to speculations which generate constant price fluctuations. For instance, if a poor harvest is predicted for next season or weather conditions are not appropriate, there will be an increase in price. The opposite could happen if there are good prospects.
Operations by large purchasers can also have an effect on the price of oil. We cannot forget that Spain is the first olive oil producing country in the world and Italy is the main destination for exports of our precious oil. When large purchasers need to buy, producers take the opportunity to raise the prices. On the contrary, when these operators have their warehouses full, producers are forced to sell at a lower price.
In any case, Extra Virgin Olive Oil is becoming more popular around the world. It is being discovered in many cultures, its consumption is increasing and so does the volume of production. To satisfy this demand, we strongly believe that prices should be kept within a range to avoid that our Extra Virgin Olive Oil becomes a luxury product.
