Olive oil and health, the main theme of the OOWC

The Olive Oil World Congress (OOWC), which will take place from June 26 to 28 in Madrid, has organized a conference entitled: "Olive oil: health and sport" with the aim of highlighting the importance of this triangle for the health of the population.

The conference was attended by Dr. Antonio Escribano, Professor of Sports Nutrition at the Catholic University of Murcia, Spain, and Specialist in Endocrinology and Nutrition, who emphasized how "olive oil and health are an inseparable binomial and is the best fat that can be used when doing sports".

For Escribano, "olive oil is rarely related to sports activity. Olive oil consumption in athletes improves performance, muscle recovery, the cardiovascular system, oxidation levels, resistance, and inflammatory processes derived from sports activity, and not only in elite athletes but also in the everyday athlete who goes to the gym, walks, goes jogging or climbs stairs".

Likewise, the nutrition expert emphasized that "there is no sport that does not benefit from olive oil, since it is useful for anaerobic and aerobic exercise" and added that "olive oil is an investment in health and it is very necessary to make the population aware of this".

The OOWC has organized this event to show associations, companies and institutions how to participate in the organization of this meeting through different forms of collaboration, including sponsorship of program presentations, free registration or various actions to make the brand visible, among many others. All options can be consulted in the sponsorship dossier on the website.

The OOWC will be a showcase for all those companies and institutions participating in some of its activities, with great possibilities of visibility during the most important event of the sector and a meeting point for all professionals in the olive grove and olive oil sector worldwide.

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 elaboration, outlining the topics that will be developed during this important event that will feature the best speakers in each subject, both nationally and internationally.

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.
