when you consume olive oil with the cooc seal of certification, you know you are buying the best extra virgin olive oil made in california. many of the olive oils on the market today claim to be extra virgin and even pure olive oil, but aren’t. a lot are actually mixed with cheaper and less healthy oils in order to meet quantity demands by consumers. to give consumers confidence they are purchasing 100% extra virgin olive oil, the california olive oil council created the cooc seal certification program.
using stricter standards than international requirements, only the best california olive oils qualify for cooc certification. to meet the criteria for the cooc seal, each producer must first submit a laboratory analysis which measures specific parameters that indicate the careful handling and storage of the olives and oil. no chemicals or extreme heat may be used during the extraction process.
next, the oil is submitted to the cooc taste panel for sensory evaluation. this panel of certified tasters conducts a blind taste-test to ensure the oil is free of defects. flavor defects indicate the use of poor quality olives, or that problems occurred during milling or storage. if olives are damaged, or they are not milled within 24 hours of being harvested, the oil will not be top quality, which is what extra virgin means.
