  • Taiwan will tighten requirements for edible oil imports

    The Taiwanese government will soon require importers of edible oils to submit test reports certified by the authorities of the exporting countries.

    The measure is taken after Taiwan’s Food and Drug Administration (FDA) suspected that a Vietnamese exporter used fake test reports to sell animal feed oil to Taiwan as an edible oil, as recorded by ICEX Spain Trade and Investment on its website, citing information contained in Focus Taiwan.

    Specifically, the requirement will apply to all shipments of more than 150 kilograms of oil, whether vegetable or animal-based. Therefore, test reports issued by private certification companies will no longer be accepted.

  • Fashion and olive oil

    Already this year, Chinese companies have splashed out several billion euros acquiring stakes in or control of Italian companies ranging from a venerable old fashion house to some of its biggest energy companies as well as to the producer of a well-known olive oil brands.

    That has vindicated Prime Minister Matteo Renzi’s decision to send an “open-for-business” signal to Beijing after he came to power in February.

    “The Chinese were knocking on our door, but we were incapable of opening it,” he said. “We were too busy navel-gazing.”

    Renzi, 39, is attempting to implement reforms designed to make the country more attractive to investors.

    “We have to become more open,” he said. In Rome last week he declared: “We must bring more China to Italy and take more Italy to China.”

  • Analysts forecast the Global Olive Oil market to grow at a CAGR of 3.05 %

    TechNavio, a global tech-focused research firm has announced the publication of its market research report on the Global Olive Oil Market 2014-2018.

    Olive oil has expanded rapidly in popularity recently, both as a food item as well as in the cosmetics and pharmaceuticals industries. High demand for the product is leading to a 3.05 percent CAGR in the Global Olive Oil Market from 2014-2018.

    About the Report

    The latest report by TechNavio focuses on the expansion of olive cultivation areas. Spain has recently expanded its production base into neighboring countries like Portugal and Morocco, and has established joint ventures in South America, China, and India.

    Koroneiki, which is the backbone of Greek olive oil production, is now produced in Spain and Australia. These joint ventures are expected to propel overall market growth.

    “Traditionally, the production of olive oil was limited to a few countries such as Spain, Italy, Greece, Syria, and Turkey but other countries have now started producing oil, with many producers acquiring production areas in the Southern Hemisphere to neutralize competition in Europe,” says Faisal Ghaus, Vice President of TechNavio.

    “This has blurred regional advantages that were formerly enjoyed by a few countries, and this increase in cultivation areas will be a major market growth driver over the coming years.”

  • Research shows Olive Leaf is a powerful antioxidant

    The results of a new research review highlighted by OVIVO, a new antioxidant Organic Olive Leaf Infusion drink, has revealed that the olive leaf has even higher levels of healthy antioxidants than previously thought.

    The new paper reveals the health benefits of the plant compound hydroxytyrosol — one of the most powerful naturally occurring antioxidants known to man. Hydroxytyrosol is found in olives and olive oil, but the highest concentrations occur in the leaf.

    OVIVO Organic Olive Leaf Infusion also has up to 30 beneficial plant compounds and phytochemicals found in the Mediterranean diet in one handy, concentrated dose.

    A double-blind study found a twice-a-day 500mg dose of olive extract was as effective as an ACE inhibitor at reducing both diastolic and systolic blood pressure, but unlike the prescription-only blood pressure pill, the extract also significantly lowered levels of dangerous triglicerides.
