Characteristics of Organic Olive Oil
Organic olive oil production follows strict guidelines set by the European regulation on ecological/organic production and labeling of ecological/organic products (EU standard 2018/848). To be considered organic, olive groves must adhere to the following practices:
- Chemical-free pest control: Synthetic pesticides and plant protection products are prohibited. Organic olive oil producers use eco-friendly alternatives, such as physical traps, heat treatment, or the introduction of natural predators.
- Organic fertilization: Organic olive groves rely on natural fertilizers like compost, or even the presence of animals, to maintain soil fertility.
- Stainless production: During the production process, organic olives must only come into contact with food-grade rubber or stainless steel.
- Regular analytical controls: To ensure the absence of pesticide residues, organic olive oil producers undergo regular checks and tests.
Organic olive oil can be easily identified by its labeling. If an oil is labeled with “EU Agriculture” or “non-EU Agriculture” and carries the Turkish trademark, the certified regulatory authority code number, and the EU organic logo, it is a certified organic product. When you see Artem Oliva organic extra virgin olive oil products, you can easily identify it by its label.
