On Tuesday 10 November, the Advisory Committee on Olive Oil and Table Olives will meet by videoconference from 10am to 5pm. This is a very important moment for the sector: participants will address urgent issues and discuss all things chemistry and standardisation, technology and the environment, and economics and promotion. Further information will also be provided on World Olive Day, which will take place on 26 November via IOC headquarters in Madrid.
The Advisory Committee is a fundamental channel of communication for the Council of Members. Its members are drawn from all branches of the olive sector – producers, processors, traders and consumers – in IOC member countries. The Committee was established to voice the opinions of business circles and to tap into their hands-on knowledge to help the Executive Secretariat find effective solutions to problems and to keep its finger on the pulse of the industry.
