The history of olive oil
The history of olive oil, of course, is connected with the olive trees and the olives from which it is produced. As we have already written on the website, historically, olive oil is most popular in the Mediterranean. And it was through him that it began to spread throughout the world.

At the moment, olive oil is widespread all over the world, but as the practice of restaurants shows, it is not used so often in everyday life. It all depends on the country in which it is used.
