Finance police seize 400 tonnes of fraudulent olive oil

Bari, February 14 - Finance police on Thursday seized 400 tonnes of extra virgin olive oil in Calabria and Puglia touted as 'Made in Italy' but in reality coming from abroad or bearing a false 'organic' label. In all 37 companies and sales depots were involved in the operation in the provinces of Bari, Foggia, Cosenza, Catanzaro and Crotone. Farmers' association Coldiretti said the seizure had prevented over half a million fraudulent bottles of oil from entering the market. The operation came two weeks after a new law came into force to protect genuine Italian olive oil.
