  • Mission for better understanding of Japanese & Korean Olive Oil markets

    Ybarra and Aceites del Sur are some of the Spanish food companies who have traveled to Asia in order to gain a better understanding of Japanese and South Korean markets through the ninth edition of the Mission for Managers organized by the Spanish Food & Drink Industry Federation – Fiab.

    For one week, senior managers of these firms have been able to gain an overview of these markets. In order to do that, they have met with representatives of the Administration and with major operators and commercial distributors, as reported in a press release.

    For Jaime Palafox, director of Economic Affairs and Internationalization of the Federation, “Initiatives like this encourage the search for business opportunities in markets which are really interesting to the sector, directly involving managers of companies and offering them a closer economic and commercial reality.”

  • New book: "Perspectives of olive oil development in Epirus...Greece"

    The Greek agro-economist Zampounis Vassilis, in collaboration with the Technological Educational Institute of Epirus and Professor George Manos, has written the book “Perspectives of olive oil development in in Epirus in the context of open trade between Greece and the world,” in which analyzes the evolution of this grove in this largely rural area of the Greek country.

    This book, of 149 pages, is part of the Project AGROQUALITY (www.agroquality.org) and has been recently introduced in the Cámara de Arta in a ceremony that was attended by farmers, agronomists and students.

    The author concludes that the olive grove is very important for many socio-economic development and environmental reasons, particularly in disadvantaged areas such as Epirus, and the figure of the farm family is irreplaceable and must be supported in order to be viable.
