Olive oil prices have risen sharply

The price of olive oil in Spain has increased significantly. Then an action such as that of Repsol is welcome to provide some support to the troubled wallet. According to recent data, extra virgin olive oil now costs €8.455 per kilogram, while the price of regular olive oil is now €7.736 per kilogram. Experts attribute the rise in olive oil prices mainly to poor harvest expectations and the drought that has struck Spain in recent years. In addition, inflation and the higher costs of fertilisers and other agricultural products, caused by geopolitical tensions, have also contributed to the price increase.

Consequences for consumers

The high prices have led to a significant increase in olive oil expenditure by Spanish households. In 2022, households spent an average of €97.7 on olive oil, an increase of €20.1  compared to 2021. This is the highest expenditure since 2007. Experts predict that prices could rise further in 2024, possibly up to €12 per litre. This increase is the result of the persistent drought and poor harvest expectations for the coming years, especially in important production areas such as Andalucia.
