Olive oil germplasm banks

The synergy between olive growing, olive oil technology and the environment is integrated in IOC technical cooperation and training activities which link various protection strategies for the sustainable development and preservation of olive resources

International Olive Council

Olive oil germplasm banks

The Ioc has also developed projects to set up olive germplasm banks; pilot demonstrations and training nurseries; olive fields; olive mills; sustainable irrigation management in olive growing; treatment and utilization of vegetable water and pomace; olive harvest forecasting by pollen monitoring; good practices for olive nurseries; and plant production techniques for good agricultural practice in olive growing, for the sustainable development of olive orchards in areas characterised by fragile ecosystems, etc. Every year, the Ioc awards grants for PhDs, master’s degrees in olive growing and olive oil technology and specialisation courses so that we can encourage research and the transfer of technologies.

The technical cooperation and training activities (seminars, courses, workshops, internships, etc.) that we run have reached more than 8,000 people in the last 20 years. The Ioc has awarded a total of 8 scholarships for PhDs, 90 for master’s degrees and more than 200 for specialisation courses. More than 36 countries have benefited from these activities: Algeria, Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, Croatia, Cyprus, Egypt, France, Germany, Greece, the Islamic Republic of Iran, Iraq, Israel, Italy, Jordan, Japan, Lebanon, Latvia, Malta, Montenegro, Morocco, Poland, Portugal, Serbia, Romania, Slovenia, the State of Palestine, South Africa, Syria, Sweden, Czech Republic, Tunisia, Turkey, the UK, Uruguay, the USA, etc.

Everyday researchers and scientists make new discoveries. It is our job to disseminate the information they gather and encourage new studies, and one of the key ways to do this is through technical cooperation and training activities.

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

COOKING
Signature recipe: Chocolate bread pudding with evoo

Signature recipe: Chocolate bread pudding with evoo

Marisa Iocco, chef and owner of Spiga Ristorante in Boston, offers us a typically American dessert, very popular and now considered so familiar that it cannot be taken off the menu, as much as it is required. The same dessert was proposed during the communication and training project held at the end of 2019 in Boston, Providence and New York, organized by the quality consortia of extra virgin olive oils Ceq Italia and, for Spain, by QvExtra! with the support of the European Union.

Olio Turri's blog, a happy exception

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
