The world’s biggest olive producer, Spain, is on course for second bad harvest in a row, raising fears of gaps on shelves and even higher prices.
Drought in Spain, is likely to halve the country’s output this year compared with the previous year. Spain usually supplies about 40% of the world’s output. However, heatwaves when the olive trees were flowering last spring and a severe drought since last summer in Spain has impacted on the production. The continued drought in Spain is putting alarming pressure on the producers and raising concerns for the upcoming harvest.
Olive oil prices have exceeded €10 per litre in the Supermarkets prompting some supermarkets to attach security alarms to bottles to deter theft. The price currently is 115 percent higher than at the same time last year, and supermarkets are already noticing changes in buying habits, as the cost of bottle is expected to continue rising.
