Olive oil prices can differ by up to two-thirds depending upon where you buy them, says FACUA
11 September 2013 @ 00:03

PRICES of olive oil can vary by up to 64.2 per cent, according to leading consumer's union FACUA.

They analysed and compared price tags of 54 brands in six supermarket and hypermarket chains, encompassing 165 products in plastic bottles or tins of a litre or five litres, and the varieties of extra-virgin, virgin, intense, and light olive oil.

The average price as at August 29 this year for a bottle of extra-virgin was 3.75 euros for a plastic litre bottle, or 3.33 euros per litre in a five-litre bottle, rising to 4.50 in tin containers of five litres.

Virgin olive oil figures for the same types of container cost 3.70 and 3.10 euros respectively.

'Light' olive oil – so-described because of its taste, not its calorie content – is 3.22 euros a litre in plastic litre bottles or 2.91 euros per litre in five-litre bottles, whilst 'intense' olive oil is 3.15 and 3.03 euros respectively.
