Revision of olive oil balance

Vassilis Zampounis
Four months after the initial estimations of olivenews.gr (First estimations for the 2018/19 production) we revisit this issue with the new scenery of the biggest countries in the Mediterranean, which cover around 85% of global production.

We don’t really notice great differences overall besides Greece, where the diverce climatic conditions (climatic changes) show their teeth. As a result, we are going to have to lower the bar of the anticipated crop quantity for 2018/19. Meanwhile the messages confirm that after last year’s 2017/18 excellent greek qualities, this year the problems are many (high acidity, poor organoleptic) either due to olive fruit fly, either/ or due to mycological diseases (gloeosporium).

Therefore, the new map of the projected olive oil production is the following:
