Spain is the largest producer and exporter of olive oil in the world, followed by Italy. While the US is the third largest consumer of olive oil, after Spain and Italy, the consumption pattern of olive oil in the BRIC countries have shown tremendous growth. It is expected that in the near future, India and China will be on the list of largest consumers of olive oil, as people have started recognizing the health benefits of olive oil and have accepted it as cooking oil.
