  • Guided tasting of eight Spanish extra virgin olive oils in London

    International expert Judy Ridgway will lead on November 5th in London a guided tasting of eight Spanish extra virgin olive oils. Doctor Simon Poole, of the British Medical Association will back her up in the event. As for the olive juices to be tasted, producers interested in participating can still register.

    The conference is organized around the screening of “Spanish Gold” directed by Zev Robinson and produced by Albertina Torres, a documentary about the culture and production of olive oil in Spain, seizing the presence of the director who is in the British city for the promotion of his project “Art and politics of food.”

    The event is aimed exclusively at professionals, from chefs and importers, to journalists, purchasing managers, responsible for restaurants… Specifically, the organization expects the participation of about 40 attendants.

  • World Olive Oil Exhibition to be held on 9 - 10 March 2016 in Madrid

    Those eligible to apply for participation in WOOE 2016 include all individuals or legally constituted groups whose business activity is fully linked to the production, marketing, promotion or wholesale distribution of bulk oil, and who possess the corresponding licence.

    Applications to reserve space should be made before March 12th, 2016. The application process may be completed on our website www.oliveoilexhibition.com, or by downloading and filling out the form available there. The reservation will be considered confirmed when the WOOE 2016 office receives the reservation application and the deposit slip for €1850. The deposit will be deducted from the final cost (for the formalization of the contract, see final payment).

    NOTE: Given the limited capacity, spaces will be assigned until full occupancy is achieved. Those who register after this point will be informed and their registration fee returned.

    In this edition extra virgin olive oil producers and international buyers will meet as they already did this year, in which more than 100 mills gathered and it attracted visitors from 38 countries.

    According to the organization, after a campaign that has served to order the olive oil stored in Spain, this event presents the challenge of its consolidation as the only international exhibition dedicated exclusively to olive oil and take a step forward in its internationalization both in sellers and buyers.
