Greek (unlabeled) organic products are sold as conventional:

International study says many organic products not labelled

A Greek study published in the journal Land Use Policy shows that products from just one-third of organically managed areas in Greece are labeled organic for sale. The study notes that while products are imported to cover the country's demand for organic produce, Greek (unlabeled) organic products are sold as conventional. As also documented in most other European member states, financial support to farmers is calculated based on the amount of land being organically cultivated, rather than the overall performance of organic farms, and this leads to organic products being sold without organic labels, to the economic detriment of the farmers.
