Olacaceae is a family of flowering plants in the order Santalales. They are woody plants, native throughout the tropical regions of the world.

The 1998 APG system and the 2003 APG II system assign it to the order Santalales in the clade core eudicots. Circumscription of the family Olacaceae varies between different authorities. [1] A total of 15 genera are accepted in the family by the Germplasm Resources Information Network, but these are split into several families by some other authors.
