IOC: Preparation for the new edition of the International Master’s Degree

Encouraging results for the 12th International Master’s Degree in Olive Growing and Olive Oil Technology at the University of Cordoba, after several years’ collaboration between the International Olive Council (the IOC), the University of Cordoba, the International Centre for Advanced Mediterranean Agronomic Studies (French acronym CIHEAM), the Andalusian Institute of Agricultural and Fisheries Research and Training (Spanish acronym IFAPA) representing the autonomous government of Andalusia, and the Spanish National Research Council (Spanish acronym CSIC). Some 20 students from eight countries were given the opportunity to enhance their knowledge in olive growing and olive oil technology.

Preparation for the 13th edition of the programme, which will take place over the next two academic years (2019/20 – 2020/21) is already underway. Representatives of the main institutions involved met in Cordoba to take stock of the situation: Ricardo Fernández Escobar, the director of the programme; Jerónimo Pérez Parra, the director of IFAPA, representing the Junta of Andalusia; Leonardo Velasco Varo, the director of the Institute for Sustainable Agriculture, representing the CSIC; Julieta Mérida, the vice-chair of the University of Cordoba; Manuela Cerezo, representing CIHEAM; and Catarina Bairrao Balula, the Head of the Technical Cooperation and Training Department at the IOC (all pictured).

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

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
