Editorial Policy

Olive Oil Times is com­mit­ted to deliv­er­ing the high­est edi­to­r­ial and eth­i­cal stan­dards in report­ing events of inter­est to our read­ers world­wide.

Our edi­to­r­ial deci­sions are influ­enced nei­ther by polit­i­cal or com­mer­cial pres­sures nor by any per­sonal inter­ests.

Olive Oil Times is an Online News Association (ONA) mem­ber. ONA’s mis­sion is to inspire inno­va­tion and excel­lence among jour­nal­ists to serve the pub­lic bet­ter.

Objective Reporting

Olive Oil Times main­tains a strict fire­wall between our edi­to­r­ial, adver­tis­ing and event man­age­ment teams. We thank our adver­tis­ers for their sup­port, but they do not affect our news judg­ment.

This pol­icy ensures unbi­ased and objec­tive report­ing and the fair admin­is­tra­tion of asso­ci­ated activ­i­ties, includ­ing the NYIOOC World Olive Oil Competition and the Olive Oil Times Education Lab.

News Tips

If you have a news tip that would inter­est our read­ers world­wide, start a con­ver­sa­tion with our edi­to­r­ial sup­port team. Please do not pro­pose arti­cles about your company’s new prod­ucts, ser­vices, or other pro­mo­tional mate­r­ial.
