Spanish farmers union want ban on duty-free Moroccan olive oil imports

MADRID: FARMERS in Spain are calling for a ban on duty-free olive oil imports from Morocco.
Agriculture union COAG Andalucia raised concerns after the annulment of a 2012 EU trade agreement which permitted duty-free imports of certain Moroccan products into the EU.
The decision has prompted COAG to request a ban on Moroccan imports of olive oil into Spain, its biggest customer accounting for 60 percent of imports.
A COAG spokesman said the inability to prove the origin of the olive oil means imports could be coming through Morocco from other countries, therefore breaking EU rules.
