Why is olive oil more expensive than vegetable oil?



  1. 0 Votes

    Olive oil is expensive to make and distribute.  Most of the olive oil on the market comes from Italy, and there are very strict and specific rules for making olive oil.  For example, there are very strict criteria for what constitutes extra-virgin olive oil.  Also, to ship olive oil all over the world, it costs a lot of money.  Vegetable oil can be made with many different types of plants and the rules on what constitutes true “vegetable” oil are extremely broad.  Therefore, it can be made and sold for much less money.
