The olive oil production in Greece will fall

As is usually the most important indicator of a very difficult situation comes from Crete, traditionally reservoir oils of high quality.

The first signs on the next oil production are not encouraging.

As is usually the most important indicator of a very difficult situation comes from Crete, traditionally reservoir oils of high quality.

Hellenic island produces about one-third of national output this year but production capacity looks set to plummet: -60%.

In Crete, as reported by the governor of the region, Stavros Arnaoutakis, production should not exceed 50-60 thousand tons, compared with an average of 120 thousand.

Blame the weather, a particularly warm and dry spring, but that will lead to a loss of income for the local growers, about 150 million euro.

The collapse of production could affect the social estate, as reported by the governor, who said: "the problem needs to be addressed as quickly as possible, so that oil producers are compensated. We are faced with an explosive situation"
