Madrid. An international harvest

International Olive Council

Madrid. An international harvest

As the olive harvest begins across the northern hemisphere, the IOC does not shy away and has organised its own international harvest. With 17 olive trees, planted around an impressive statue of the dove of peace, the garden in front of the IOC holds one of the most beautiful exhibitions of olive tree varieties from all over the world.

Some of these trees were planted at the time when certain countries acceded to the IOC. In the photo, you can see Executive Director Abdellatif Ghedira accompanied by Ambassador of Egypt Omar Ahmed Abdel Wahab Selim, Embassy Counsellor Tarek Sirak and Deputy Executive Directors Jaime Lillo and Mustafa Sepetçi picking the fruits of the Egyptian olive tree.

The different varieties of olives harvested today, selected with care by Head of the Technology and Environment Unit Abdelkrim Adi, were placed in special containers which will be handed over to authorities as a symbolic gesture from the IOC to mark the 2018 olive crop year.

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.

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

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
