Do you think you know all you should know about Extra Virgin Olive Oil?

If you are interested in being guided through appreciating Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO), and discovering the diverse offering of South African producers, then please join us at Klein Joostenberg (Stellenbosch) on 26 May 2022 for this exclusive Extra Virgin Olive Oil course.

You’ll not only find out about the finesses of this excellent locally grown product but you will also pick up invaluable insights into how best to display, promote, sell and manage the quality of this liquid gold to your customers.  The course is intense in content but light in touch, designed to offer an understanding of what makes an olive oil extra virgin and an appreciation of our local producers’ commitment to compliance and quality in EVOO.

The course, led by international olive oil expert and SA Olive Panel Leader, Dr Aldo Mazzini, along with other South African olive oil experts, will cover the following aspects:

  • Olive oil grade specifications
  • Key quality criteria
