The Egyptian Minister of Agriculture invited the Executive Director of the International Olive Council, Abdellatif Ghedira, for an official visit to Cairo.

Ghedira was accompanied by the Head of External Relations, Mounir Fourati. During the trip, he met with members of the Egyptian delegation to the IOC, as well as representatives of the national olive sector.

He was also welcomed by the Minister of Agriculture and Land Reclamation, by the Head of the Economic Department of the Arab League, by the Deputy Director of UN Organisations and Agencies at the Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and by the Director of Sustainable Development and International Cooperation at the Arab League.

They covered many topics over the course of the mission, including the chair of the IOC and meetings of the Council of Members and Advisory Committee, planned for 2019, the 60th anniversary of the creation of the IOC. The latter were discussed with representatives from the olive-growing sector and members of the Egyptian delegation at the IOC

The mission was continued at the Arab League headquarters, where Ghedira met with officials from the Department of Economic Relations and the Ministry of Sustainable Development and International Cooperation, with a view to studying the possibilities of strengthening cooperation and the exchange of information.

Egypt, which is already a major producer of table olives, envisages an ambitious programme for developing the country’s olive-growing culture. This involves planting 100 million olive trees, which will start to draw the interest of big foreign investors.

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.

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
