a) Supermarkets

As far as the low price is concerned, in large supermarkets it is normal that they have very tight prices. However, the quality of these olive oils are very low. If you pay peanuts, you get monkeys.

Also, supermarkets are the most common option, but not the best. They have many advantages, but for those who are looking for something special and quality, supermarkets are not the best option.

b) In mills or cooperatives

Secondly, one can quickly conclude that by always buying in mills or cooperatives, we will achieve the best price, but this is not always the case. If we go to the same point of production, the price will get the best, but it depends on the company’s policy. Also, you have to transport it to your home, and it has costs as well.  However, it is true, here if you go to a good oil mill or cooperative, the quality must always be excellent.

On the other hand, there are price variations throughout the year, which can make the price of oil higher at source but you will have a very good quality.

c) Specialised shops

Also, other place to buy olive oil is a specialized shops, like our shop in Las Rozas de Madrid. Here, we always offer extra virgin olive oil of hiugh quality with very reasonable prices. Probably, here is the place where you can find the best quality and price.

We work with several oil mills and cooperatives that produce top quality oils, and we try to anticipate price variations to get a excellent extra virgin olive oil at the best price. In addition, we belong to a cooperative in Jaen, the San Benito cooperative. The oil from this cooperative is always sold at the best price and without intermediaries. This oil is our star product of all olive oil we sell.

However, why should we focus so much on price? Is olive oil a very healthy and delicious product that we use every day? Therefore, the important thing is to find a good relationship between quality and price, and here we are going to give you some advice so that you can achieve this.

d) Gourmet shop

In the gourmet shops it is another option to find quality extra virgin olive oils. Although here in many cases they only offer us select oils in bottles or cans of small quantity. It is not always possible to find a good olive oil in 5 litre containers in these shops. However, the most common will be to have some premium extra virgin olive oils.

Any news that you read from any newspaper, any interview that talks about trade in the future will talk about online stores. This is why almost all sales channels now have an online store where you can buy olive oil.

The advantages and disadvantages of this shops are the fallowing:

  1. Convenience: Having your order delivered to your home is very convenient, even more so when we have less and less time.
  2. Low price: The competition is much hard, as anyone can sell olive oil on the Internet. Therefore, there is more supply, and the price is lower.
  3. Limitation of human contact: Shopping on the internet is much colder, so human contact is lost and we tend to get isolated.
    No contact with the products: Seeing and touching the products is something we like. Selling on the internet does not allow this.
