Look at the origin of your olive oil bottle, is it “product of” or “made in”? They seem similar but in fact totally different. This article will help you understand your olive oil’s origin more clearly.
Consumers may be familiar with this phrase since it appears in many daily products. Goods with a “made in” label must contain at least 50 – 70% of ingredients produced and packed in that country. The remaining 30 – 50% of ingredients can come from many places around the world. In general, “made in” products are not completely produced in a country. If your olive oil’s origin is labeled as “made in” a country, it is not made 100% in that place.
This phrase is less familiar to consumers than “made in”, as there are not that many products in the market meeting requirements for this label. Goods with the “Product of” label must be produced and tested inside a country and made from 100% ingredients in that country. Specifically, they must go through a strict monitoring process that requires a higher accuracy level. In other words, once a product can meet requirements for a “product of” label, it is high-quality and 100% made inside a country.
The requirements for the “product of” label can be different across countries. You can refer to Canada’s “product of” and “made in” claims to understand more about these two concepts.
