Mainland Greek Olive Oils have the lowest incidence of fraud

Well it seems it isn’t just the Italians and to a lesser extent, the Cretans, who commit Olive oil fraud, the Spanish authorities just broke up a large ring that was blending other inferior oils.

If you browse the internet, you’ll see plenty of stories of Italian, Spanish, and the occasional Crete producers getting into the olive oil fraud game (last month they caught two ships with Moroccan olive oil delivering to Crete producers). This is almost unheard of in our villages in Kalamata, and even rarer with the limited production olive oil we produce in the north in Halkidki, Mt. Athos.
