Subject: CBS USA television program
In relation to the CBS USA television program of last OL/$/àAL6 with title "Agromafia" made from the journalist Mr. Bill Whitaker who claimed in a very coarse, inaccurate and misleading way that the oil sector has strong collusion with organized crime and that the extra virgin olive oil is made from blends made with oils of seeds, chlorophyll and beta-carotene.
That all our products and all production line is made with olive crashed in our oil mill placed in our seat and our company Biolevante srl is not absolutely involved with this matter. We declare also that our Company is IFS,BRC,KOSHER,HAIAL,ISO certified and scrupulously respects all the standards expected from the above certification agencies. We declare more that with our olive oil association of producers in Rome (Assito!) we are considering to take immediate legal action for defamation against the authors of deceptive and fraudulent TV report only able to discredit the ltalian product and usually all the made in Italy in favor of local products.
