Olive oil in schools: only France, Italy, Spain and Greece support

The inclusion of olive oil in Community programs to promote their use in schools, as has been done with fruit or milk, it seems he still has a long way to go.

Although from the Spanish government, through its agriculture minister, Isabel GarcĂ­a Tejerina, has been raised, both in board meetings of ministers of agriculture and the Special Committee on Agriculture of the EC, to date only have positioned for the measure advocated by the representatives of France Spain, Italy and Greece.

The Andalusian and Catalan have repeatedly requested that olive oil is included in the future European program to support whole fruit and milk in schools being prepared by the European Commission with the aim of expanding the inclusion of healthy products, linked to the Mediterranean diet, food distribution is done in schools.

Recall that the current proposal to amend these European support programs reflects the inclusion of this product within educational support measures, but not within the scope of products to be distributed.
