Despite a reduction in consumption due to the economy, Greeks still consume by far the highest amount of Olive oil. Research in the European Union for 2013, indicated that Greece is at the top with almost 17 kg per person, followed by Spain and Italy at 10.4 kgs and 9.2 kgs respectively. In Ireland the amount is just over 1 kg not bad given that we are ahead of most EU countries !
