Organizers & Supporters

The Olive Oil Conference is organized by the North American Olive Oil Association in conjunction with International Extra Virgin Olive Oil Savantes.


The NAOOA is a not-for-profit trade association of marketers, packagers and importers of olive oil in the United States, Canada and their respective suppliers abroad. The association strives to foster a better understanding of olive oil and its taste, versatility and health benefits. For more information about olive oil and the NAOOA, visit www.AboutOliveOil.org.

In 15 years International Extra Virgin Olive Oil Savantes has held over 40 olive oil tasting programs in many countries – Spain, Italy, United Kingdom, USA, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. During this time the three-day program has evolved into one of the world’s leading independent forums for the commercially important attributes of extra virgin olive oil. Participants number in the hundreds and provide a strong professional network which includes producers, distributors, retailers, chefs, food media and consumers.
