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.

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.

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
