Refillable olive oil bottles banned in restaurants from 1st March
07 March 2014 @ 16:20

From now on, olive oil must only be served at tables in sachets, capsules or non-refillable bottles.

The period of grace for this legislation which came into effect on 1st January expired on 28th February, and from now on all restaurants must use olive oil bottles which cannot be refilled, and clearly show branding and labelling indicating the origin of the oil they are serving, so that “consumers are not being defrauded” by restaurants using inferior quality oils on their tables.

Any restaurants not complying with the law from now on will be fined.

To replace their refillable olive oil containers restaurants are allowed to purchase branded bottles of olive oil which must be thrown away when emptied or use individual packed capsules or sachets of olive oil.

Ecologists have fought this measure tooth and nail, saying it will lead to increased olive oil waste, increased packaging waste and penalise small producers and the thousands of country restaurants who use oil produced on their own family plots and must now waste money on fancy packaging which does nothing to accentuate the flavour of the food they currently serve.

Wouldn't it be nice if the government were more stringent regulating laws that matter.
