Ioc and Wco Strengthen collaboration

On the invitation of the World Customs Organization, the Standardisation and Research Unit attended a workshop on the modernisation and standardisation of the Customs Laboratory. The event also saw the adoption of the Ioc’s proposal on custom codes.

The Unit gave a presentation on its activities as well as those of the Ioc as a whole, including the new agreement and recent accessions. The different categories of olive oil were presented according to the Ioc trade standards, as well as the approval of physico-chemical and organoleptic laboratories. An introduction to sensory analysis was given, explaining the positive and negative attributes that distinguish the various categories of oil.

The presentation was followed by an open tasting session of olive and vegetable oils to raise awareness and show participants how they differ.

Finally, the session was closed with a fruitful discussion between the different participants who showed great interest in continuing their learning.

Antico Borgo, the scent and flavours of the Frantoio, Moraiolo and Leccino trine

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
