Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) is oil of the highest quality, obtained from the first pressing of the olives.  It is entirely natural, with a free fatty acid level measured as oleic acid of less than 0.8% (NZ 0.5%) and a peroxide value of less than 20mEq per kg (NZ 15), criteria that are set by the International Olive Council in Madrid.    New Zealand olive oils that meet the even more rigorous certification standards of Olives New Zealand  for chemical and sensory analysis are awarded the distinctive red OliveMark seal, guaranteeing that the oil is true to its label.
