The Product & Where I Found it
Where Is That?
The Economy for Olive Oil
Olive oil is mainly produced and made in California and the Mediterranean. Production for this product costs a lot less in the Mediterranean. The economics is a lot more complex then one would think. It is effected by everything from the European Subsidy to EU farmers, the currency exchange rate, the relatively high demand for and sale of olive oil to labor, land values, production cost, world wide crop production, marketing subsidies, world wide consumption, carry over from the previous year, and mother nature.
The olive oil that is produced in Italy is shipped mainly to the US and other big European countries such as London and Paris.
Why I Picked This
Italian olive oil interests me because my grandfather is very Italian, and I grew up eating and loving mostly Italian food. Also I love everything about Italy; Everything from the delicious food to the culture and cities.
While walking through my local Home Goods, I came across a small aisle that consisted of ethnic foods, specifically Italian imported foods. It was at this time I thought of what a good idea it would be to use this for my geography presentation. Out of the wide assortment of multiple pastas and traditional sauces, I finally decided on a bottle of olive oil entitled: Frantoi Redoro Olio Extra Vergine di Oliva Italiano. ( Or in english Extra Virgin Olive Oil). According to the labeling on the back of the bottle, this particular oil was produced and packed in Grezzana Italy.
Grezzana, Italy is a comune in the Province of Verona. This is located in the Italian region Veneto. Grezzana is about 100 km west of Venice.
