Obtaining the AOC for olive oil from Provence is subject to an identification and allocation procedure.
The olives must come mainly from the varieties aglandau, bouteillan, cayon, salonenque and local varieties, brun, cayets, ribiers, belgentiéroise.
Each olive tree must have a minimum area of 30 m² or 24 m², depending on the date of the decree. The minimum planting distance between trees must be at least 4 metres. There are 2 types of taste:
– The AOC Provence Olive Oil intense taste – fruity green (fresh olives)

La Compagnie de l’huile d’Olive offers AOC de Provence Organic olive oils for sale. Organic farming certification guarantees that the olives are not processed. The gustative quality of olive oil is real because it is an AOC de Provence of artisanal production, unlike the olive oils sold in supermarkets bearing the AB logo, which are industrial oils.
