What the SA Olive CTC seal on Extra Virgin Olive Oil means

The SA Olive CTC seal on a bottle of Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) is a seal of confidence. 

It is the guarantee that the producer is committed to compliance in quality olive oil production.

100% local

The seal confirms that the EVOO is 100% locally (South African) produced and is authentic Extra Virgin Olive Oil. This means the consumer may experience all the enjoyment and benefits of a fresh juice extracted from newly harvested olives.  The SA Olive Commitment to Compliance (CTC) Scheme is not a certification scheme. It is a voluntary integrity-based scheme managed by SA Olive for locally produced extra virgin olive oil.

Correct labelling

The CTC seal also guarantees that the labelling of the product is correct and transparent. The year of harvest and ‘best before’ date are clearly displayed on the product to assure consumers of the freshness of the oil.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a natural, unrefined olive oil with low acidity, no defects and a fresh, vibrant taste. If properly extracted and carefully stored, EVOO has a multitude of health benefits and a full spectrum of flavour nuances, including: bitter, fruity, pungent, green, ripe, crisp, and, above all fresh.

The SA Olive seal guarantees all this while encouraging consumers to support the local olive oil industry and the producers who have earned the seal.
