The Egypt Agriculture Minister and Chair of the International Olive Council, Ezz El Din Abu Steit, opened the 53th meet­ing of the IOC’s Advisory Committee in Cairo on April 24 in the pres­ence of sev­eral inter­na­tional observers. Georgian Vice Minister for Agriculture George Svanidze described the state of the olive oil sec­tor in his coun­try.

A project for remov­ing plas­tics from the olive oil mar­ket was launched by rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the University of Jaén. Scientific speeches were given by the Heads of Units of the IOC’s Executive Secretariat, then the atten­dees had news on the Observatory, the new world olive oil doc­u­men­ta­tion cen­ter.

The valid­ity of the panel test for the organolep­tic assess­ment of vir­gin olive oils was reaf­firmed by the Advisory Committee, which stressed the need for addi­tional time to strengthen it. A joint pro­posal is set to be sub­mit­ted at next November’s ses­sion.
