Liferesilience: essential information for the fight against Xylella fastidiosa

The Executive Secretariat welcomed partners from LIFE RESILIENCE (http://www.liferesilience.eu/), a European project aiming to spread awareness about sustainable practices for preventing Xylella fastidiosa in intensive almond and olive tree cultivation.

Jaime Lillo, Deputy Executive Director of the IOC, Abdelkrim Adi, Head of the Technology and Environment Unit, and Catarina Bairrão Balula, Head of the Technical Cooperation and Training Unit, welcomed Teresa Carrillo Cobo, from Galpagro, and Ricarado Migueláñez, from Agrifood Comunicación, two members of the project.

The project will end in 2022 and aims to create and develop new varieties of olive plants that are resistant to pathogens and adapted for intensive systems of production through irrigation. It also aims to offer practical demonstrations of sustainable production techniques, including natural methods of vector control that prevent the spread of the bacteria and improve resistance to bacteria and pathogens in general. The IOC will help disseminate the results of the project around the world.

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
