Based on a Life Cycle Analysis, the entire sector processes are accomplished in three main stages: cultivation, oil extraction, and oil treatment. The main inputs for these three stages are energy, water, labor, and machines with different percentages for each stage. The value creation index can be defined as the ratio between the revenues and the costs. Value creation index is calculated for each stage of the olive sector and the results showed that the total value creation for the sector is greater than two.
