Olive oil is a delicious and versatile food product. Olive types, harvest times, or growing regions can affect its flavor profile making it difficult for consumers to know exactly what they're buying when shopping at their local grocery store! That's why the International Olive Council (IOC) certifies professional tasters to help with grading.
At CHO group, where Terra Delyssa orchards reside, our non-governmental IOC accredited sensory panel south of the Mediterranean consists of 8 certified olive oil tasters.
