United against Xylella


United against Xylella

The IOC has opened, together with the CIHEAM, the international meeting on “Integrated actions against Xylella fastidiosa to protect olive trees and international trade” with the participation of nearly 100 persons. At the opening, hosted by Maurizio Raeli, CIHEAM Bari director, Placido Plaza, CIHEAM General Secretary; Abdellatif Ghedira, IOC Executive director; and Carmine Nardone, Director of the Agriculture and Rural & Environmental Development Department of the Puglia Region, have pointed out the negative impact of the bacteria on the olive industry in general and the necessity to draw up a joint action plan to face this threat.

The Puglia representative pointed out that in the affected area only 4.000 of the 7 million trees were affected but that there was the urgent need to develop a standard and an information system that may avoid the dissemination of the bacteria to other areas and trees. He pointed out that during this international meeting a way of improving the management of the bacteria and to protect the olive heritage would surely be achieved.

The IOC executive Director and the CIHEAM General Secretary outlined the importance of gathering forces of international organisations like CIHEAM, IOC, FAO, EPPO and IPPC to achieve a joint strategy to protect the olive trees and international trade from the Xf bacteria.

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
