Being a premium price product, EVOO’s authenticity and traceability are important for both consumer health and commercial purposes. In order to protect high-quality foodstuffs from a specific origin, Protected Designations of Origin (PDO), Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) and Traditional Specialty Guaranteed (TSG) were established at European level since 1992 and thereafter regulated . These products meet strict production rules describing, for EVOOs, specific characteristics such as geographical production area, used cultivars, methods of cultivation and processing. Nevertheless, the EVOOs PDO and PGI assessment still remains essentially based on farmers declarations. Mediterranean countries are responsible for over 95% of globally produced olive oil, including 105 European quality scheme registered from Italy (holding a quality record with over 40 among PDO and PGI EVOOs), Greece, Spain, France, Portugal, Croatia and Slovenia . The aim of this work is to verify, following our studies on Italian PDO  and PGI  EVOOs, the possibility of assessing these classifications by using 1H NMR metabolic profiles databases and MVA (multivariate analysis), beside farmers declarations.
