Olive oil fraud

European Food Safety Authority did not have the information requested.

Dear European Food Safety Authority,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting information about the olive oil fraud in the EU between the years 2010 and 2017 (inclusive).

For each case in which the product didn't meet the regulatory quality standard, please also provide with further information regarding:
- Year in which the case was registered by the sanitary authority.
- The causes for not meeting the regulatory requirements:
o Labels without the European Union requirements.
o Products with a label establishing a superior quality for the product than it truly is.
o Adulteration of the product
o Deterioration of the product
- If the case was related to health issues
- The name of the product and the name of the supplier.
- The country of origin of the product.
- The number of units of the product registered in retailers in each of the countries.

I would also appreciate it if you could provide me with any document about the monetary cost of the fraud of olive oil for the UE and its members.

Some parts of this request may be easier to answer than others, and should this prove to be the case I would ask that you release available data as soon as possible rather than hold up the entire request.

I would like to receive that information in electronic format, preferably in .csv or .xls.

If you feel that a substantive response to this request is not possible within a reasonable time frame or the request is too broad, I would be grateful if you could provide me with assistance as to how I could refine the request.

Yours faithfully,
Carmen Aguilar García
