  • Campden BRI is to start testing the authenticity of olive oil imported into the UK

    The firm was chosen via an open tender process by the Rural Payments Agency (RPA) to carry out the chemical testing at its labs in Gloucestershire, UK.

    It will analyse batches of olive oil for a range of lipid components which will determine if the olive oil grade declared on the label is genuine.

    EU olive oil regulations come into force in the UK on 1 March 2014 to ensure that olive oil is marketed correctly and to provide a deterrent against fraud.
