An international trade group says Greek food is becoming increasingly vulnerable to smuggling.
According to the Greek Trade Association, Greek food imports from Turkey have fallen from 3,300 tonnes in January to around 500 tonnes.
Turkey is a major supplier of food to Greece, which has a long-standing trade relationship with Turkey.
But as the economy has fallen in recent years, the trade relationship between Greece and Turkey has also declined, with Greece relying on Turkey as its main source of imports.
This is largely because of a lack of coordination between the EU and Turkey, according to the trade association.
The trade association’s head of trade, Michael Della Volpe, told Greek broadcaster YLE that the Turkish food trade is currently one of the most vulnerable areas of the Greek economy.
“We have the situation where Turkey is the most significant customer of Greek products and it is not a problem that we could solve by simply banning Turkish imports,” Della said.
However, he added that it would be important to develop a system to ensure Turkish food is always safe.
“In Turkey, food can be bought on a very small scale,” Dalla said.
“This makes it difficult to identify the exact source and quantity of food.”
Greek media reported that a Turkish food trader was arrested in Greece after being arrested by Greek police on Tuesday.
The trader was reportedly found guilty of trafficking a large amount of Turkish food.
However it is unclear if he was linked to the recent smuggling of Turkish foods from Turkey into Greece.
