Oops, yes. I got that backwards. The point, though, is that olives are being harvested and processed in South America now.

I had read where the best olive oil you can get is one with a date on it stating when the harvest was done. So I've been getting the California brand of olive oil. I go through a bottle maybe every two to three months, but I still check them out when I shop. I haven't noticed any price increase here at all.

I've been getting the California Olive Ranch EVOO, very nice. Otherwise I get Kirkland Light olive oil from Costco as a pan lubricant, cooking eggs, etc. Since I have branched out into using avocado oil and coconut oil, the demand for Olive Oil in my house has reduced considerably.
