Olive Politics

Where there are humans involved, there are politics.  From EU standards to new US labeling requirements, there’s a lot about who is in and who is out.  Of course there is money involved. We will try here to capture some of the current issues by linking you directly to reports and let you make you own judgments.

Here in Turkey, there is of course no shortage of controversy about the new legislation in Turkey about olive grove classification or about the recent bulldozing by a private energy company of 6000 olive trees in rural towns to make way for an energy plant.
