King Felipe VI accepts the presidency of the Honorary Committee of the OOWC

His Majesty King Felipe VI has accepted the presidency of the Honorary Committee of the Olive Oil World Congress (OOWC), a event that under the slogan 'Taste it, Enjoy, It's Olive Oil', wants to become the most important congress of the sector at international level.

The OOWC is a collaborative project that aims to position itself as a recognized brand under which the various producers from around the world can meet and work for the common goal of all operators in the olive oil chain, which is to promote the transfer of knowledge about this product in all links of the production chain and around the world.

At present, the Honorary Committee also counts for the moment with outstanding personalities such as the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food of Spain, Mr. Luis Planas; Ms. Isabel Díaz Ayuso, President of the Community of Madrid; Mr. Julián Martínez Lizán, Minister of Agriculture, Livestock and Rural Development of the Junta de Comunidades de Castilla-La Mancha and Ms. Carmen Crespo Díaz, Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries, Water and Rural Development of the Junta de Andalucía.

The fact of having the support of His Majesty the King Felipe VI and all these authorities who are part of the Honorary Committee in this first edition is an honor for all those who are working to make the OOWC the first event of all international operators in the world of olive groves and olive oil in 2024.

The first edition of the OOWC will take place on June 26, 27 and 28, 2024 at the Assembly Hall of the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC) in Madrid, where all the operators of the olive oil value chain will meet to discuss topics of great relevance for the sector and its future.

The program is being developed, adding proposals from scientists and professionals who are part of the Scientific Committee. In total, more than 10 different countries are collaborating in its preparation, outlining the topics that will be developed during this important event that will feature the best speakers in each subject, both nationally and internationally, to discuss topics such as artificial intelligence, industry 4.0 and other technological developments applied to the production and processing of olive oil. Sustainability will also be a key topic at the congress, without forgetting the profitability of farms, the benefits of olive oil for health or marketing in international markets.

Under the slogan 'Taste it, enjoy, It's olive oil', the OOWC has the collaboration of AgroBank, the Junta de Castilla-La Mancha through the brand 'Campo y Alma' and the Junta de Andalucía through its brand 'Gusto del Sur' as Platinum sponsors; Grupo Interóleo, Balam Agriculture and Agrocolor, as Gold sponsors; and the company Kubota as Silver sponsor.

About the OOWC:

The Olive Oil World Congress is an event that will bring together the world's leading speakers in each subject, generating knowledge about the new developments and innovations existing in each link of the value chain. It will bring together all operators in the sector worldwide, with the aim of joining forces to continue working together. Taking into account that Spain is the world leader in production, marketing and export of olive oil, it has been decided that the first edition will be held in Madrid in 2024, but the project will start in 2023 with the promotional actions of "En route to the OOWC-2024". After this first edition, the venue will be itinerant, although cross-congress activities will be developed all over the world.
