Following a denunciation, a control on a large Feta producing facility in central Greece occurred, leading to the confiscation of 400 tons of illegal "Feta" cheese, that contains cow milk. The confiscated 400 tons were the last batch of an ongoing trade deal supplying the German market.
This development has led to an increase in controls on milk transports, increasing the price of sheep milk to over 1.00 € / l (from approximately 0.70 €). The increase in sheep milk price also has led to an increase of the domestic mutton meat price from 9.00 €/kg to over 12.00 €/kg.
