This year’s new extra virgin olive oil will be even more precious as there will be less of it, due to the difficult year that Italian olive growers have had. The first show case where it will be possible to taste and buy this year’s production will be Olio Capitale, the most important fair entirely dedicated to the best extra virgin olive oil, from 7 to 10 March 2015 at the Maritime Station in Trieste.
The Italian fair for typical and quality extra virgin olive oil, organized by Aries, will be back for the ninth edition confirming the format that edition after edition has made it into an appointment of reference for operators and enthusiasts in the sector on a national and international level.
Hundred of oils will be presented, with business meetings between exhibitors and foreign buyers and the collateral events to involve and educate the public at large with the mini taster courses and lessons by the Olio Capitale Cookery School. All this in the heart of Trieste, right in front of Piazza Unità, the main square of the town, in a striking waterfront location.
The ninth edition will include new developments, starting with the dates: the fair will be open Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, with two days, the last two, dedicated mainly to business meetings and the catering industry. The focus on business and expansion abroad will be stronger, in order to meet the requirements of professional operators and to facilitate the matching of demand for Italian extra virgin olive oil from foreign markets with the supply from producers.
The Olio Capitale Competition will be back again; the international competition reserved for Mediterranean oils in which the best oil will be endorsed by a triple jury: a jury of professional tasters, a jury of restaurateurs and a jury of consumers called in to taste a short list of samples selected by a professional panel.Olio Capitale, the most important fair entirely dedicated to the best EVOO,
