The Advisory Committee of the International Olive Council holds its 52nd meeting

The Advisory Committee of the International Olive Council holds its 52nd meeting

The Executive Director, Adbellatif Ghedira, opened the 52nd meeting of the Advisory Committee on olive oil and table olives. He was accompanied by Jaime Lillo and Mustafa Sepetçi, the two Deputy Executive Directors. Representatives from the olive sector around the world came to IOC headquarters in Madrid to attend the meeting. Ali Ben Hadj M’Barek held the chair; he focused on the ratification of the 2015 International Agreement on Olive Oil and Table Olives, taking note of the conclusions of the 107th session held in Buenos Aires, Argentina in June 2018, and of the proposals to be presented at the session in November, and analysing the draft document on the application of the organoleptic assessment method to be submitted to the Council of Members.

The Advisory Committee was informed of the Executive Secretariat’s activities in economics and promotion; chemistry and standardisation; olive growing, olive oil technology and the environment; and the progress of the new global centre of documentation on olive growing (the Observatory).

On this occasion, the vice-president of the Egyptian Olive Council, Mostafa Hashem, announced that his country was a candidate for the 53rd meeting of the Advisory Committee, which could be held in Cairo in April 2019.

At the end of the meeting, M’Barek thanked María Isabel Gómez, the head of the Economy Department, on behalf of the Advisory Committee, the Executive Director, and the Executive Secretariat. She will retire at the end of 2018, and so the chair thanked her for her tireless work over the years in supporting the olive sector the world over.

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.

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
