The IOC, a truly international organisation

The 108th session of the Council of Members of the International Olive Council has officially begun, with meetings being held this week between 19 and 23 November as the Chair moves from Argentina to Spain. The delegations of 15 member countries have come together at headquarters in Madrid: Algeria, Argentina, Egypt, Iran, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Montenegro, Palestine, Tunisia, Turkey, Uruguay and the European Union.

Over the course of the session, members will examine various aspects of the sector, including administration and finance; chemistry and standardisation; technology and the environment; and economics and promotion. They will also be updated on the construction of the new global centre for olive oil documentation and research, the Observatory.

On the morning of 22 November, under the supervision of the Olive Growing, Olive Oil Technology and Environment Unit, a seminar will be held focusing on the positive impact olive growing can have on the environment. Discussions will revolve around the ability for olive trees to extract CO2 from the atmosphere and methods for calculating their carbon footprint. In the evening, members will come together to celebrate World Olive Day 2018, alongside authorities and members of the diplomatic body accredited by the IOC.

There will also be several delegations attending in an observer capacity, in particular the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN, the League of Arab States, the Arab Federation for Food Industries/the Economic and Social Council of the Arab League, the International Centre for Advanced Mediterranean Agronomic Studies, the Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture, Iraq, New Zealand, Peru and the United States.

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.

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
