International Olive Council expert meeting on possible contaminants residues

International Olive Council expert meeting on possible contaminants residues

The IOC Executive Secretariat organised an expert meeting on possible contaminants residues in olive oils and olive-pomace oils on 28 May 2019.

Several issues have been discussed over the past few months, since our last meeting in December. In particular, four electronic working groups have been created, and an open call from the Executive Secretariat allowed other laboratories, including private ones, to participate in data collection and method validation.

During the next meeting, the group will also examine the results of the 2018 ring-test on the determination of pesticide residues and organisation of the next proficiency testing, as well as discuss on an important document on the maximum limits of maximum residue limits (MRLs) in olive oils and other olive products, based on a survey recently carried out in IOC member countries.

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

Signature recipe: Chocolate bread pudding with evoo

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.

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
