According to the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations, in 2007, the United States produced 1500 tonnes of virgin olive oil, a negligible amount of the world’s total, but enough to make it rank twenty-second in that category. Spain ranked first, producing 1,326,000 tonnes, which was 42% of the world total virgin olive oil production.
