Opening of the IOC international course for panel leaders

Deputy Executive Director Mustafa Sepetçi and Head of the Olive Growing, Olive Oil Technology and Environment Unit Abdelkrim Adi unveiled the new international course for leaders of virgin olive oil sensory analysis panels at IOC headquarters in Madrid.

The work was presented by Head of the Technical Cooperation and Training Department Catarina Bairrao Balula (all three pictured here alongside Juan Ramón Izquierdo, the course director). The programme was drawn up by technicians experienced in leading virgin olive oil tasting panels.

According to IOC method COI/T.20/Doc. nº 15/Rev. 8 for the organoleptic assessment of virgin olive oil, the leader of the group must be duly trained and have an in-depth knowledge of the types of oils that will be tested as part of their work. Panel leaders must be trained in the tools used in sensory analysis and the specific skills and means to prepare, organise and realise trials. Some 32 candidates from 16 countries took part in the panel leader course.

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.
