International Olive Council Executive Director message

International Olive Council

As you know, on 14 March 2020, the Kingdom of Spain declared a state of emergency in order to manage the health crisis caused by COVID-19 and, in particular, decreed the restriction of the movement of persons and the limitation of transport services for the next two weeks.

Consequently, the Executive Secretariat informs you that the activities planned at IOC headquarters during this period have been postponed. A new agenda will be communicated to our members, experts and interlocutors.

We will continue to carry out our other activities remotely through teleworking and will be reachable at any time by e-mail. A minimum service will also be provided at IOC headquarters, including answering telephone calls, between 10.00 am and 3.00 pm from Monday to Friday.

Thank you for your understanding. We will inform you of any news.

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

Marisa Iocco, chef and owner of Spiga Ristorante in Boston, offers us a typically American dessert, very popular and now considered so familiar that it cannot be taken off the menu, as much as it is required. The same dessert was proposed during the communication and training project held at the end of 2019 in Boston, Providence and New York, organized by the quality consortia of extra virgin olive oils Ceq Italia and, for Spain, by QvExtra! with the support of the European Union.

Olio Turri's blog, a happy exception

Olio Turri's blog, a happy exception

Very few oil producers run blogs. Turri's, with its minimalistic design, is both simple and elegant. It is also available in English: posts are published at regular intervals and dispatched through newsletters > Luigi Caricato


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
