At ABC Kitchen restaurant in New York City, the pizza is made with various ingredients including olive oil made in the US.

In Chico, California, the California Olive Ranch is not only making extra virgin olive oil, but also creating jobs. There are 92 workers who harvest olives from 10 million olive trees. The olives are tested, weighed and then taste-tested by professionals in a lab.

"When you have a made in America product that is produced at a lower cost, at a higher quality, and it’s made by your fellow Americans," said Gregg Kelley, the company's president and CEO. "I think that’s a recipe for success."
