Iooc, investment opportunities in the Egyptian olive sector

"Egypt has the full support of the International Olive Council in the fields of technology and environmental protection, olive oil chemistry and the promotion of olive oils, as well as in terms of economic and statistical matters." These were the words of Abdellatif Ghedira, the Executive Director of the IOC, at the opening of the international seminar on investment opportunities in the Egyptian olive sector, on the eve of the 53rd meeting of the Advisory Committee.

At the opening of the ceremony, the Egyptian Minister of Agriculture, H.E. Ezz El Din Abu Steit, outlined the investment opportunities available to foreign entrepreneurs seeking to create new partnerships with his country. Egypt, which currently holds the rotating presidency of the International Olive Council, has just launched an ambitious investment project to plant one hundred million olive trees on Egyptian territory over the next four years.

In addition to the seminar and the work of the Advisory Committee, the Olive Oil, Olive Oil Technology and Environment Unit organised a table olive tasting course for panel leaders in Cairo.

Abdellatif Ghedira encouraged "Egyptians and all other producer and consumer countries to seize the opportunities that may arise from the cultivation - in the agronomic and philosophical sense - of olive oil". He stressed that olive growing was synonymous with wealth and job creation.

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
