Edeka and Kaufland are removing three products from their range because researchers see rising prices and increasingly poor quality as a result of climate change. Of the 23 olive oils from different manufacturers tested, only four received the grade “good”.

Six products were rated “poor” and therefore did not pass the test: Edeka Good & Cheap extra virgin olive oil. Edeka Gut & Günstig extra virgin olive oil. Kauflands K-Bio extra virgin olive oil. KauFland K-Classic extra virgin olive oil. Edeka Gut & Cheap Extra Virgin Olive oil. The affected products are the “Edeka Gut and Günstig Extra Virgin Oil” and “Kaufland’s Classic Extra Virgin Olive Oil. The trigger for the withdrawal from the range is said to be the poor test result in the Stiftung Warentest magazine issue 04/2024.
