The Hel­lenic Food Author­ity (EFET) and the po­lice’s fi­nan­cial crime squad have un­cov­ered a ring dis­tribut­ing adul­ter­ated olive oil in north­ern Greece. Chem­i­cal anal­y­sis re­vealed that the oils ad­ver­tised as ex­tra vir­gin were in fact ar­ti­fi­cially col­ored seed oils of un­known prove­nance. Af­ter an in­ves­ti­ga­tion, au­thor­i­ties named a com­pany in Stavroupoli in Thes­sa­loniki, which al­legedly dis­trib­uted the adul­ter­ated oil to re­tail stores across the re­gion us­ing bo­gus la­bels and codes. The brand names used by the ring were At­lantis, Pithari and Arkadi, avail­able in five and one liter bot­tles.
