Greek Police Arrest 7 For Selling Bogus Olive Oil

November 27, 2017 from FoodManufacturing

"A Greek prosecutor on Sunday charged seven people for fraudulently selling large quantities of adulterated sunflower oil as olive oil in Greece and abroad."
"They were found operating a workshop where they added a dye to turn the yellow sunflower seed oil into a green hue resembling olive oil."
"The adulterated oil was sold in five-liter (1.32-gallon) cans, off-market, to Greek consumers and exported, in one-ton pallets, mainly to Germany."
"The product was peddled as "extra-virgin olive oil, straight from the producer." Its domestic price was 12-15 euros ($14.30-$17.90) per five-liter can, compared to the retail price of 26-30 euros ($31-$35.80) for the real thing."
