  • Buyout Firms CVC to Carlyle Said to Consider Bid for Spanish food group Deoleo

    The buyout firms are looking into bids about 50 percent below Deoleo’s share price of 47.5 euro cents, and any deal would depend on refinancing the company’s debt, said the people, asking not to be named because negotiations are private. The firms’ deliberations are at early stages, and food companies also may make non-binding offers, the people said.

    CVC Capital Partners Ltd., Carlyle Group LP (CG:US) and PAI Partners SAS are among buyout firms considering offers for a majority stake in Spanish food group Deoleo SA (OLE), according to people familiar with the matter.

  • 2014 NYIOOC Conference Program Announced

    A two-day conference, part of the second annual New York International Olive Oil Competition (NYIOOC), will focus on olive oil product development, brand-building, marketing and distribution.

    The event is organized by the industry publication Olive Oil Times, and sponsored by Fairway Market and the International Culinary Center (ICC).

    NYIOOC founder and president Curtis Cord said this year’s program is designed to explore innovative strategies for olive oil producers, marketers and merchants to get their businesses to the next level.

    The New York International Olive Oil Competition

    The New York International Olive Oil Competition is the definitive olive oil contest in the world. Here, the most distinguished panel of international olive oil judges ever assembled scrutinize entries from every region to find this year’s very best olive oils on Earth.

    No other food is like olive oil. For thousands of years it has been exalted in religious rites and ceremonies, as a cosmetic and a remedy for a variety of ailments.

    It is, of course, the cornerstone of the Mediterranean diet – considered among the healthiest in the world. Olive cultivation and oil milling is a way of life for entire populations and generations before them.

    Olive oil is a culinary wonder. It can, like no other ingredient, draw and amplify flavors from foods. Extra virgin olive oils have complexity defined by countless factors including their cultivar, terroir and the the dedication of the producer.

    A great olive oil will leave you speechless. It will elevate anything it is poured over to something unforgettable.

    Producing excellent olive oil requires skill and hard work. Making the very best takes even more than that.

    The program details and registration information can be found on the official event website nyoliveoil.com.
