The paper presents the evolution of the olives for consumption market in the world and in the European Union during 2000/1-2015/16. Table olives are an important source of food because they contain high-quality fats and provide significant intake of antioxidants, minerals, vitamins, etc. For the analysis of the olives market in the world and in the European Union a number of specific indicators such as production, consumption, import and export were used. The market-specific indicators analyzed in the paper posted significant increases in the 2015/16 season as compared to the 2000/1 season.This demonstrates the increase in human consumption of table olives, mainly due to the positive impact on global population health. Worldwide, the main olive-growing countries are also the main olive-exporting countries (European Union, Egypt, Turkey). At the level of the European Union, Spain, Greece and Portugal occupy the top positions in the production and export ranking. The statistical data that led to the analysis of this market were taken from the International Olive Oil Council.
