You want to be sure that your olive oil meets the quality requirements of your customers: During production in the producing country, during import, in trade and when selling to the consumer? For this you need a partner who accompanies you as a production company, wholesaler, retailer or discounter at all stages of production and trade in matters of olive oil quality control. A partner who neutrally and independently checks the quality for you.
SGS INSTITUT FRESENIUS offers you the complete service of a quality service provider from the cultivation of your valuable product to the retail trade, from sampling to sensory and analytical tests to the certificate.
In the field of chemical analysis, the focus is on the parameters that demonstrate grade, storage, adulteration and treatment process. SGS INSTITUT FRESENIUS, in addition to testing the individual parameters, also offers discounted packages to determine not only the quality level of the olive oil, but also to exclude possible contaminants such as pesticides and plasticizers (phthalates).
The aim of the sensory analysis of olive oils is to determine the quality of olive oils by means of a standardised test procedure - the so-called panel test. Trained analytical and objective testers evaluate the organoleptic characteristics of olive oils using an intensity scale. By assessing the intensity of sensory defects and positive attributes, the category of an olive oil is determined. In addition to the quality parameters fruity, bitter and spicy, an assessment of harmony is made.
The olive oil panel of SGS in Germany was approved by the IOC Executive Secretariat after rigorous testing. The performance and reliability of the sensory results must be demonstrated by conducting annual proficiency tests. The SGS olive oil panel is listed as an officially recognised and approved panel in accordance with Article 4 of Commission Regulation (EEC) No 2568/91.
In our one-day workshop you will gain an insight into the professional sensory evaluation of olive oils.
