Possibilities of Analyses and Activities in the Producing Countries

Oct 2019. The cultivation and processing of olives into oil has a millennia-old tradition. Quality begins in the olive grove. When and how carefully the olives are harvested and processed in the mill, however, has a decisive influence on the later quality of the olive oil. At the end there is the storage of the olive oil. Moreover, olive oil is also one of the most frequently adulterated foods in the European Union and the possibilities for fraudsters are manifold.

In this webinar, Eurofins olive oil expert Nadja Liebmann will show you which factors have an effect on the quality of olive oil and how analytical methods can help to track down adulterations.

Webinar Content

  • Factors influencing olive oil quality (cultivation, production, bottling and storage)
  • Analytical detection methods for quality and adulteration
  • Conclusions on quality optimisation and assurance

At the end of the webinar there will be time for your individual questions.
