You want to be sure that your olive oil meets the quality requirements of your customers in terms of production in the country of manufacture, import, trade and sales to the consumer? To do this, you need a partner to accompany you as production company, wholesaler, retailer or discounter at all stages of production and trading in the field of quality control of olive oil. A partner who checks the quality for you in a neutral and independent way. SGS INSTITUT FRESENIUS offers you the entire service of a quality service provider from the cultivation of your valuable product to the retail trade, from sampling, sensory analysis, analytical analysis (such as triglycerides, diglycerides, pyropheophytins) to the certificate.
The aim of the sensory analysis of olive oils is to determine the quality of olive oils by a standardized testing method - the so-called panel test. Professional analytical-objective assessors evaluate the organoleptic characteristics of olive oils by an intensity scale.
By evaluating the intensity of sensory defects and positive attributes, the category of an olive oil is determined.
The International Olive Council is the world’s only international intergovernmental organisation in the field of olive oil and table olives. It was set up in Madrid, Spain, in 1959, under the auspices of the United Nations. IOC recognition is obtained after demonstrating good performances and reliability of the results obtained by carrying out annual proficiency tests and a rigorous check by the IOC executive secretariat.
After SGS Olive Oil Panel has been listed as an officially recognized and approved panel according to article 4 of commission regulation (EEC) No 2568/91, it is now recognized by the International Olive Council (IOC).
