- 6,000 litres of extra virgin olive oil were pilfered from Terraverne in Teba.

πŸ” Victim's Statement
Terraverne spokesperson, Laura Larrubia Nogales, likened stealing olive oil to snatching jewelry due to its rising value.

Post-theft, Terraverne bolstered their security measures, adding more alarms, cameras, and collaborated with police for night patrols.

πŸ“’ Dcoop's Input
Dcoop, Spain's major olive oil cooperative, fortunately hasn't experienced any thefts. However, they acknowledge that soaring prices increase theft temptations.
