Lebanese olive oil amongst the best in the world and is available with farmers and cooperatives

29-1-2014

The follow-up committee of the organizations represented in the olive sector met yesterday to respond to allegation about contamination in local olive oil.  The meeting was held upon the invitation of the president of the association of olive farmers in Kura, George Constantine Inati, who strongly emphasised that both Palestinian and Lebanese olive oils are considered to be amongst the five best in the world based on the findings of several research centres.  He added that the Lebanese olive oil sold by local farmers and cooperatives in all regions of Lebanon is pure whilst imported olive oil supplies are not.  Inati invited consumers to buy Lebanese olive oil in order to support the local industry, to protect it from the competition of lower quality imported oil, and to put an end to the greed of importers who exploit domestic consumers and undermine local producers.
