    The 27th edition of Sitevi, the international equipment and expertise exhibition for the vine-wine, olive, fruit-vegetable productions, to be held from 24 to 26 November at the Parc des Expositions of the French town of Montpellier, will introduce a new graphic identity that represents the three protagonist sectors involved in this event: wine, olive oil and fruit and vegetables. Furthermore, each booth will be identified with the logo of its sector.

    With four months to go before the show opens, Sitevi can already be qualified as a success: sales are higher than at the same period in 2013, all the major stakeholders from each sector have confirmed their attendance, and 85% of the available space has already been booked.

    “Sitevi is today acknowledged by professionals as the international

    benchmark trade event. Its 2015 edition will bring further confirmation of this, once again highlighting the vitality of its three sectors, ” comments Martine Dégremont, Show Director. “Buoyed along by this momentum, SITEVI can boast a true international dimension along with dynamic growth, with, the registrations of 78 first-time exhibitors so far! True to its reputation as a friendly, convivial business meeting place and a genuine solution provider for producers, the show is a savvy combination of expertise, know-how and foresight.”

  • IOC announced today search for a new executive director

    The International Olive Council (IOC) announced on its website today that it has begun a search for a new executive director.

    September 30, 2015 has been announced as the deadline for the submission of applications.

    The executive director serves as the IOC’s chief administrative officer and is responsible for its daily administration and management. The current executive director is Frenchman Jean-Louis Barjol, who has served in this position since January 1, 2011 and whose contract will come to an end on December 31, 2015, completing a five-year term.

    With its headquarters in Madrid, the IOC is an intergovernmental organization working in the field of olive oil with a mandate to administer the International Agreement on Olive Oil and Table Olives signed in 2005 under the auspices of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD). The draft text of the new agreement to replace the current one was endorsed by the members in Madrid last month and will serve as the basis for negotiations at a UN conference in Geneva in October 2015. The new agreement is expected to enter into force on January 1, 2017 and expire at the end of 2026.

    Barjol, reached today in Japan where the IOC is launching a new promotion campaign, said he intends to make the most of his remaining time at the intergovernmental agency. “I look forward to paving the way for the future of the IOC with the new agreement for the benefit of the institution and its members, including possible new members thanks to the new wording of the draft agreement,” he said.

    Candidates for the post of executive director must be a national of an IOC member country and be fluent in at least one of the IOC’s official languages: Arabic, English, French, Italian or Spanish. Each member country can nominate up to three candidates by October 1, 2015. A selection committee made up of representatives of each member country will be set up and assisted by an external consultant.

    IOC member countries currently include: Albania, Algeria, Argentina, Egypt, the European Union, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Montenegro, Syria, Tunisia, Turkey and Uruguay.

    The vacancy notice is available on the IOC website.

    None of the world’s five largest economies are members of the IOC. Barjol, a former sugar industry professional, made United States membership a key objective of his tenure, but the U.S. has maintained it has no intention to join the intergovernmental organization.
