5 Varietals and geographical trends Today, various firms that have been traditionally active in olive oil production and marketing, in particular from Italy, Spain and Greece, are promoting olive oil with brand names based on specific geographically originated environments. Olive oils produced in Toscana, Crete, Cyprus, Negev and elsewhere can be found in the markets of Europe, the USA and Australia. The concept behind this trend is based on the effect of the environmental conditions of the area of olive cultivation on the quality of the oil produced.
