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

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
