Extra Virgin Suicide by the New York Times
An interesting graphic was published by the New York Times and can be found here.
It describes how some Italian companies do business.
Greece with approximately 85% of its annual olive oil production rated as Extra Virgin, is exporting in bulk some tens of thousands of tons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil to Italy each year.
Can anyone find a Greek olive oil brand on the shelves of Italian retail stores?
ELEONES was created in order to reverse this trend of exporting in bulk high quality Greek Extra Virgin Olive Oil in order to be used for blending with inferior quality olive oils.
