Santarém, top table seat in Portugal for the IOC

The Executive Director of the IOC, Abdellatif Ghedira, was given a top table seat at the first global summit on olive oil in Portugal, as part of the National Agriculture Fair in Santarém. Ghedira opened the international symposium with a presentation on the development of the world olive oil market, taking the floor immediately after the inaugural speech by the President of the Confederation of Farmers of Portugal, Eduardo Oliveira e Sousa.

This initiative included a series of activities, such as a national competition for Portuguese olive oils, a national symposium on olive growing and an international conference on olive oil, which sought to provide an opportunity for promotion, networking and the exchange of experience among operators across the olive sector. The global summit on olive oil was organised under the patronage of the President of the Republic of Portugal, and speakers included Phil Hogan, the European Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development, and the Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation, Carlos Moedas.

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

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
