Fresh International Olive Council-backed grants for the University of Jaén

The new programme was announced at the University of Jaén in Andalucia during an official ceremony attended by the University’s rector, Juan Gómez Ortega, and professors from the specialisation programme. Also in attendance were the IOC’s Deputy Executive Director, Mustafa Sepetçi, the Head of the Technology and Environment Unit, Abdelkrim Adi, and the Head of the Technical Cooperation and Training Department, Catarina Bairrão Balula.

This training course is unique in the world; it allows participants to gain knowledge in the sensory evaluation of olive oils and broaden their horizons thanks to the support of the IOC. The IOC has agreed to grants for over 20 participants from Brazil, Greece, Italy, Montenegro, Morocco, Slovenia, Spain, Tunisia and Turkey. After the opening ceremony of the programme, the rector, Juan Gómez Ortega, presented the Deputy Executive Director of the IOC, Mustafa Sepetçi, with the text of a protocol aimed at strengthening cooperation between the two institutions. This text will be looked at by the relevant departments of the Executive Secretariat of the IOC.

A Tuscan PGI oil made by Terre dell’Etruria, a farming cooperative society that has invested all it has on its members, expertly helping and guiding them towards quality and success. The most impressive features of this extra virgin oil, flavour apart, are its remarkable quality/price ratio and extraordinary yield > Luigi Caricato

Ravioli with Garda extra virgin olive oil stuffing and black olive charcoals

Extra Virgin Garda DOP olive oil’s distinctive traits are its naturally delicate flavor and its elegance. At the taste it can be recognized for harmony or its organoleptic notes and for the light and balanced aromas: the scents of fresh grass, aromatic herbs, hay and artichoke, together with the typical almond aftertaste, make it unique. Recipe by chef Carlo Bresciani

The art of healthy eating

The fruit of tradition, care and a passion for quality. Our story starts here, in Puglia. The beating heart of the Mediterranean Sea. This is the birthplace of our oil-making art, an art that has always considered olives as a living body. Video Spot Corporate by Masseria di Sant'Eramo
