Juan Vicente Gómez Moya, 1940-2019

International Olive Council

Juan Vicente Gómez Moya, 1940-2019

It is with great sadness that on 23 August we bid farewell to Juan Vicente Gómez Moya, a beloved member of the IOC family who served as Chair of the Advisory Committee for a number of years.

Born in Valencia in 1940, he graduated in law and was a state commercial technician before holding important positions in the public administration of various Spanish cities. He was commercial counsellor at the Spanish Embassy in Paris as well as director of food products promotion at the Spanish Institute for Foreign Trade (Spanish acronym ICEX). He dedicated many years of his career to the olive sector as the director of ASOLIVA, the association of Spanish olive oil exporters, until retiring in 2009. He was awarded the Order of Civil Merit by the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food of Spain in 2010 for his excellent service.

We at the IOC would like to join his family in saying goodbye and giving our thanks to not only a great professional, but also a great friend. His hard-working attitude and infallible sense of humour will be dearly missed by those lucky enough to know him and to have worked alongside him. We will always remember him and the role he played in making our history.

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
