Preliminary production estimates from surveyed sources call for an average output of Greek olive oil with excellent quality.

“Italy is also the world’s largest importer of olive oils,” Coldiretti declared, “that are often mixed with domestic ones to acquire, with the images on the label and under the cover of historical brands — even if transferred abroad — a semblance of Italian character to be exploited on domestic and foreign markets, a behavior that promotes fraud that must be fought with the strict application of law.”…/prosecutor-accuses-sev…/49603

The Prosecutor of Turin, Raffaele Guariniello, has launched an investigation into alleged commercial fraud by seven major Italian olive oil brands.
Dozens of volunteers in the Athens suburb of Glyfada began harvesting olives from trees growing on public land to provide oil for local residents.

Good news for the Greek olive oil industry! It is no surprise “that the olive oils produced in the region of Messinia have the same organoleptic and chemical characteristics as those produced in the area of Kalamata.”

Hopefully this development leads to a reduction of the practice of quality Greek olive oil being exported without identity, before being bottled and branded by other countries.…/kalamata-pdo-expands-m…/48388

The European Commission approved the extension of the Kalamata olive oil Protected Designation of Origin throughout the Regional Unit of Messinia.
