Rising Popularity of the Mediterranean Diet in the Region will Influence the Product Demand

The Mediterranean diet practice is strongly increasing across European countries, including Belgium, Greece, Iceland, and Spain. The product is a primary source of added fat in this particular diet. European Commission is bringing several projects such as MedDiet, Mediterranean Diet Virtual Museum, and MedEat Research to promote the diet practice and consumption of refined olive fruit oil. Different organizations are also joining hands with the EU commission, including the Mediterranean Diet Foundation in Barcelona and the International Foundation of Mediterranean Diet in London to promote this particular diet across the region. This trend will positively influence the product consumption in the near future.


Popularity of Organic Olive Oil to Drive the Market Growth in the Upcoming Years

There has been a paradigm shift in the demand for organic foods across the region. The reasons behind this growth are increasing awareness of health, harmful effects of pesticides used during traditional olive production, food safety, and environmental sustainability. According to the Ministry of Agriculture Spain, one out of ten hectares of organically cultivated land in Spain is reserved for olive groves. They cover nearly 222,723 hectares. Furthermore, some regional government authorities are designing supportive laws to increase olive production in organic processes. Thus, the increasing organic and extra virgin olive production will drive the Europe olive oil market growth in the upcoming years.

  • In April 2022, the Italian government introduced a new law to promote organic farming, including olive. It is also providing several financial assistance to the farmers to boost organic farming.  


Competition from Counterfeit Oils to Impede the Demand for Olive Oil in the Market

In several European nations, the product is exhibiting strong competition from alternative oils such as canola and sunflower oil. Several northern European countries use other oils across the household, food service, and HoReCa sectors. In several northern European countries, olive fruit oil is considered as a higher-end product with its competing vegetable oils such as canola, soybean, palm, sunflower oil. Therefore, consumers are using the oil for dressing salads, raw vegetables, and in dips instead of using it as a cooking oil. Thus, the strong competition from alternative products in terms of price and availability may lower the demand for the product in the region. Moreover, increasing fluctuations in the product prices due to impact on harvest caused by climatic conditions may impact the market growth of the region negatively.
