International Olive Council, the group of experts on statistics prepares for the new crop year

Here’s a first look at the outcome of the 9th meeting of the IOC’s group of statistics experts, which took place at the Organisation’s headquarters in Madrid. The group looked over balance sheets from previous crop years and production predictions for the coming year (2018/19).

The group took note of the data provided by the Executive Secretariat on the IOC’s proposals for harmonising customs codes, as presented to the World Customs Organization; the progress of the study on consumer behaviour; and predictions for the national balance sheets from Argentina and Morocco.

The Head of the Economic and Promotion Unit, Ender Gunduz, coordinated the work, with the help of the Head of the Economy Department of the IOC, María Isabel Gómez, who also took the opportunity to introduce her successor, Juan Luis Vicente Calvo. Work on implementing the new world documentation centre for olive oil was continued with the help of Michele Bungaro, the Head of the Observatory and IT Department.

The Observatory has a strong relationship with both the Economy Department and the group of statistics experts as it will be responsible for publishing up-to-date information on the sector. The main statistical aspects linked to production in IOC member countries were presented and participants were able to share their thoughts on changes in the sector. The group of statistics experts is an advisory body created by the IOC to support the activities of the Council of Members and the Executive Secretariat.

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.

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
