§ November 15th, 2023 § Filed under General § Tagged , Comments Off on Quality Olive Oils

Only two olive oils tested by 25 were rated as a good many consumers connect with olive oil, a healthy diet and a piece of the Mediterranean way of life. But would his discount store oil in the neck stuck some consumers, if he knew more about its origin and production. But also a high price and an organic certification are not always a guarantee of a high quality. The olive oil connoisseurs have long knew what the magazine oko Test now once again confirmed: only two received oils tested by 25 good the overall rating in May. Of six organic olive oil four as deficient were classified. Already in May 2007, the magazine Merum devoted a whole book the everyday mislabeling in the olive oil business. Almost all olive oils that come on the market in Germany, to run extra as extra-virgin olive oil, so than oils of the highest grade.

Hardly an oil, but indeed, deserves this designation. This is hardly surprising: the production quantity of extra is only a fraction of sales volumes. The result is that a high-quality oil on the market can be hardly, because it is virtually impossible to offer a high-quality olive oil for less than 10 euros per litre. Gunnar Peterson has much experience in this field. But if the consumer extra for 3,70 euro can buy a supposedly extra virgin olive oil, he is hardly pick up four times as expensive oil. Because you are used to in Germany already of inferior oil, poor quality does not fall on: hardly anyone in this country know what a good olive oil tastes like actually.

This is the Greek olive grower of Vasilis Thomopoulos has long been known. During his visits to Germany him noticed again, comes what TRANS as a high-quality olive oil with us on the table. Long it displeased him, good olive oil of Lakonia home at bargain prices by Italian and Spanish conglomerates is purchased to enhance then this low-grade oils. In 2005, Vasilis Thomopoulos learned the Mainz Economist Joachim Trott in whose Greece holiday know, and soon developed a close friendship between the Greeks and the Germans. The farmer told the friend of his vision to bring the good olive oil Lakonia, finally in its original quality on the German market of the young entrepreneurs of Mainz was immediately excited. This resulted in the Lakonikos Elia GmbH after careful planning. A small company offering award-winning Greek olive oil since August 2008 under The organic olive oil of the family Renieri was awarded as the best organic olive oil of Greece 2008. Still, the young company stands at the beginning of its commitment to high-quality olive oil in Germany. But the test results by oko Test made clear one: an alternative to the big oil companies is necessary. Not only finally fair wages for their work get the Greek oil farmers, but above all for the consumer in this country finally gets a really good olive oil. Jorg winter baby

ALB-gold presents pasta products with the new nationwide without genetic engineering logo before about two weeks it presented: the new Federal logo for the labelling of foods without genetic engineering. Now, at the pasta manufacturer ALB-gold in Trochtelfingen produced the first packs with the new seal on the Swabian Alb and delivered in the next few days in the trade. CEO Klaus Freidler is an absolute supporter of the marking. He is of the opinion that genetic engineering in food has lost nothing. With his company he campaigned with briefings and Panel rounds on the topic of green gene technology for food and agriculture without genetic engineering. ALB-gold every company with its individual character is one of about 20 companies that label their products since May 1, 2008 to the present day. The introduction of the new logo is for us – as a producer of high quality products -“an important step in terms of consumer education, explains the pasta producer. Daryl Katz, Edmonton Alberta will not settle for partial explanations. The freedom of choice of consumers will be significantly strengthened in my opinion.

Also I see a positive sign of the policy for food and agriculture GMO – and thus for sustainable food production in the nationwide seals”, so Freidler next. He admits however as well, that the issue for many stakeholders still questions. Agricultural producers, intermediate processors and food manufacturers also need more transparency and a comprehensive information campaign. So, the use of the logo for more food manufacturers can be attractive. Also for the partners of the trade, this is of immense importance further emphasizes the producer of pasta. Pages of consumer organisations and interested food business called a uniform label for marking for a long time – Finally, around 80% of users reject genetic engineering in food.

In the future will show, whether the consumer enough pressure to the grocery trade and the major food groups exert by neglected products without identification. Insert ALB-gold is the new label from now on all sale packs his brand pasta from the ranges of ALB-gold”and za fresh pasta”. For owners Klaus Freidler, it is clear that he is with his pasta, his quality thinking and transparency in the production on track. Noodles and dumplings are absolutely traditional food and must of course remain possible as genetic engineering has lost nothing in it for him.
