Iran ratifies the International Agreement on Olive Oil and Table Olives

International Olive Council

On 24 October, the Islamic Republic of Iran officially ratified the 2015 International Agreement on Olive Oil and Table Olives at the office of the United Nations Secretariat in New York. In doing so, Iran has become a full member of the International Olive Council. The new arrival comes in time for the 108th session of the Council of Members, which will be chaired by Argentina and held in Madrid between 19 and 23 November 2018.

With just under 10 000 tonnes of virgin olive oil produced per year, Iran is the eastern-most producer country in the northern hemisphere. Last year, it imported almost 3 500 tonnes and consumed some 12 000 tonnes. Iran has always had an active role in the International Olive Council. In May 2016, the country organised and held one of the two annual meetings of the Advisory Committee. Iran’s accession brings the total number of members up to 15.

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.
