The IOC, in collaboration with the Government of the Argentine Republic, which holds the chair of the IOC in 2018, is organising an international seminar on the olive sector in the Americas, which will be held on 22 June 2018, in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
This seminar provides an ideal opportunity to exchange opinions regarding the challenges faced by the olive sector in this continent from a multidisciplinary perspective, with the presence of a number of stakeholders. In this regard, invitations have been sent to senior government officials and representatives of the private sector from the main countries in the continent with an interest in the olive sector.
The seminar will address the following subjects: the situation and outlook of the olive oil and table olive sector in the Americas; olive oil and health; marketing and olive product sale trends; and the sensory analysis of virgin olive oil.
The IOC will present the activities that it is conducting in its three main areas of work: olive growing, olive oil technology and the environment; economy and promotion; and standardisation, nutrition and health.
