Apparently one of the worst oils you can buy: "Filippo Berio: It was clearly contaminated and, according to the testers, was so sensorily defective that it should not have been sold as "extra virgin olive oil"."

Got a bottle, thanks!
This is more expensive than a Gallon of Petrol
After trying quite a few brands, I've since settled on this brand as taste and heath properties are far superior to anything you can get in a supermarket amazon.co.uk/One…8-3

Personally Sainsburys 2L can of extra virgin is the best in terms of quality/price you can get on a physical shop. I'm not sure about contaminants etc as you mention for the Filippo one but taste wise is much better than many other more expensive ones. It's from South Spain.

I found the 5ltr online for £30 . I'm still searching for a better price
This is garbage, do not buy!
You know how you can tell if an extra virgin olive oil is actually trying to be that?
If you can’t see through the bottle!!!
Any bottled olive oil in clear glass is no better than your standard sunflower oil. The very first rule of packaging extra virgin olive oil is to use a dark glass that the sun has a hard time getting through as it will destroy the cold pressed goodness within hours and it becomes a plain old lubricant that has lost of its benefits.
Again, only buy olive oil that is in a dark brown glass, those people know what they’re doing and let this BS company go bankrupt...

I'd avoid this purely because of the plastic container. Not only is it the container clear, but worst of all, the container will be imparting pthalates into the oil. Pthalates are cancerous! That's why you should only buy EVOO in dark glass containers or tin cans which you can then decant into wine bottles.

I agree but the limits of certain compounds are regulated and have to meet EU standards.

Your statement would apply for any sauce or food with a moderate fat content which is stored in a plastic container though!

Agreed but who's checking? We have oils in the market being labelled as extra virgin but are not and worse still, mixed with inferior oils. Very few of these get flagged so the chances of finding oil with high levels of pthalates are not that great. The US is much stricter on these tests than we are in Europe.

My point is that olive oil is pretty good at absorbing pthalates and there are plenty of opportunities during the harvesting, production and bottling phases to introduce them. Short of requesting certificates of conformity for the packaging, it would be my decision not to buy evoo from a producer that utilises clear plastic containers as I just don't want run that risk.
