The third edi­tion of the NYIOOC Conference will take a look at the cul­tural con­text of olive oil in today’s world by pre­sent­ing the points of view of a decid­edly dis­parate panel of speak­ers.

Organizers of the annual olive oil sum­mit, to be held April 15 at the International Culinary Center in New York, said the inno­v­a­tive pro­gram is designed to fos­ter a deeper under­stand­ing of olive oil’s place in today’s chang­ing world, before dar­ing to pre­dict where it will be in the years to come.

The con­fer­ence is part of the New York International Olive Oil Competition, the world’s largest and most pres­ti­gious olive oil qual­ity con­test.

In con­trast to the first two edi­tions of the con­fer­ence, which dealt with the nuts and bolts of the global olive oil busi­ness and brand build­ing, this meet­ing will pro­pose a step back from the for­est,” said Curtis Cord, NYIOOC pres­i­dent and founder of the event. Let’s look at how this ancient prod­uct flows through our mod­ern cul­tures and ven­ture a fore­cast to guide deci­sions affect­ing its future.”

Sharing their per­spec­tives on olive oil’s cul­tural con­text will be a dis­tin­guished group of speak­ers encom­pass­ing the worlds of busi­ness, nutri­tion, fash­ion, media, food stud­ies, olive oil pro­duc­tion and culi­nary arts.
