International Olive Council

The IOC is on the advisory board of a Hori- zon2020 project called OLEUM, alongside a consor- tium of some 20 partner organizations. The project aims to develop advanced solutions for assuring au- thenticity and quality of olive oil at a global scale. A three-day meeting was held in Hamburg at the end of January to discuss the progress of the activities un- derway.

Once the methods proposed and the changes made to the current methods are validated, the consortium will present them to the IOC Executive Secretariat for possible discussion at the chemical expert meetings and to seek their approval. The IOC highly appreciates the objectives of this project, and wishes the teamgood luck for the final stage of their work in order topresent valid and timely results.

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

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.

Very few oil producers run blogs. Turri's, with its minimalistic design, is both simple and elegant. It is also available in English: posts are published at regular intervals and dispatched through newsletters > Luigi Caricato


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
