The small glass jugs filled with green or gold coloured extra virgin olive oil are familiar and traditional for restaurant goers across Europe but they will be banned from 1 January 2014
"From next year olive oil "presented at a restaurant table" must be in pre-packaged, factory bottles with a tamper-proof dispensing nozzle and labelling in line with EU industrial standards."
Lunacy, sheer bloody lunacy. We should get out of this mad house of European ultra bureaucratic committees before we are all running around in circles screaming "Ban it ! Ban it !" Unless of course running around in circles has been banned by some European ultra bureaucratic committee.
