Who Owns Olive Oil Times?
Olive Oil Times is solely owned by Curtis M. Cord, its founder and president. No other company or individual has a stake of any kind in the publication or its activities, which include the New York International Olive Oil Competition and the Olive Oil Times Education Lab.
Prior to starting Olive Oil Times, Mr. Cord had never engaged in any activity related to the olive oil business, and he has never held a financial stake or interest in any outside company involved in the business of olive oil. Cord maintains a strict policy of journalistic independence and he is therefore regularly cited in the media as an objective and impartial observer of the olive oil world.
