Re­us­able olive oil bot­tles to be ban­ished from restau­rant ta­bles

Kathimerini English - - Focus -

Min­istry has called a halt to the prac­tice of restau­rants and tav­er­nas top­ping up the olive oil bot­tles on their ta­bles from a source in the kitchen, say­ing it poses a hy­giene risk to cus­tomers. As of Jan­uary 1, 2018, food ser­vice en­ter­prises will be banned from us­ing re­us­able bot­tles on their ta­bles and will be forced to pro­vide branded olive oil only. All bot­tles will have to bear the mark of the pro­ducer – rul­ing out olive oil bought in bulk – and will be up to the restau­rant to de­cide whether it will charge pa­trons ex­tra for it. Kathimerini un­der­stands this is one of the new clauses to be passed in the com­ing pe­riod, af­ter the con­clu­sion of public con­sul­ta­tion in April. The restau­rants have agreed to this de­ci­sion.
