We coordinate the ARISTOIL network , a Euro-Mediterranean project funded by the EU, INTERREG MEDITERANEAN project, in which olive oil producers, olive oil mill associations, Universities (Pharmaceutical Schools) and Local Governments from all Mediterranean EU countries participate. The aim of the project is to study and highlight the optimum conditions that must be ensured both during the harvesting of the fruit and the production of olive oil in the mill. At the same time, more than 4,000 olive growers and dozens of mill managers have been trained in the production of certified olive oil in accordance with EC 432/2012.
