FLOS OLEI 2021: For the sixth year in a row, Istria is the world’s best region for extra virgin olive oil

first_imgFor the sixth year in a row, Istria is the world’s best region for extra virgin olive oil, according to the results of Flos Olei 2021. Family Galic (Kostanjica, Grožnjan) opened a new edema cellar, tasting room and sales point, while the company Oleum Maris opened a new modern building with a tasting room and a point of sale. Family Beletić (Novigrad) has opened a new, modern olive processing line PIERALISI. In the popular publication Flos Olei 2020, the so-called ‘bibles for extra virgin olive oils, as many as 71 olive growers from Istria have produced such high-quality extra virgin olive oil that it deserves a prestigious award, ie inclusion in the new, twelfth edition of Flos Oleia. / / / EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL “ISTRIA” PROTECTED AT THE LEVEL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION  In the new edition of the so-called bibles for extra virgin olive oils are included 73 oils from Croatia of which 71 are from Istria, and two from Dalmatia. At the same time, a large number of Istrian olive growers achieved better results compared to last year, which is proof of significant work on raising the quality and application of the latest scientific and technological achievements in olive growing. One of the most significant investments in olive growing took place in Istria in this extraordinary year. “It sounds unreal and I would say pretentious, but for the sixth year in a row, Istria has been declared the best olive growing region in the world. Since its first edition, in 2010, Istria has immediately taken an important role and positioned itself as the second best olive growing region, just behind Tuscany. However, every year the advantage of Tuscany was smaller, and at the end of 2016 it took the leading position that it has maintained to this day, but with a far greater difference than Tuscany previously had in relation to Istria. The fact that Istria has 71 olive growers and Tuscany 43 speaks volumes about what it looks like this year. An even more important fact is that over 1.000 samples from all over the world arrive for evaluation. After that, a selection of the 500 best in the world is made and that within the 500 best, Istria has its 71, which is really impressive”Denis Ivošević, director of the Istria County Tourist Board, proudly points out. Family Chiavalon (Vodnjan) has opened a new olive center / modern building that includes a new line of olive processing Mori, with a new cellar, tasting room, sales point, warehouse, while the Family Ipsha (Ipši, Oprtalj) also opened a new olive growing center / renovated and revalued traditional building with a new Mori olive processing line, with a new cellar, tasting room, sales point, Istrian tavern and warehouse; Family Vanđelić (Bale) has also opened a new olive center / refurbished and revalued traditional building housing a new Mori olive processing line, with a new cellar, tasting room, sales outlet, combined with fruit and vegetable production. For the second time in a row, as many as three olive growers reached the grade of 98 (Mate, Ipša, Olea BB), while thirteen Istrian olive growers were included in the extra class above 95 points.Flos Olei 2021 This global success certainly contributes to the branding of Istria and Croatia as a gastronomic destination, given that extra virgin olive oil is the main addition to dishes and the basic food product of Mediterranean cuisine, and due to its organoleptic and medicinal properties appreciated almost everywhere in the world. Although we have known this for many years, I think it is extremely important to be aware of the fact that in no discipline, in any industry, in sport or any other important competition or simply in places where reputation is gained and confirmed, we do not have such success as the Istrian extra virgin olive oil has for six years in a row, Ivošević emphasizes and adds: “We are very proud of this fact, but it seems that a lot of work is needed both in our country and abroad, to give this primacy full and real value, to become aware of it first in Croatia and then all those who promote Croatian gastronomy. they proudly point it out. In the expectation that next year we will reach at least one grade of 99, I believe that the time has come and that six years of confirmation is enough proof to realize that we are the best in the world in something” In 2021, Istria will be adorned again the title of the world’s highest quality region for extra virgin olive oils, for the sixth time in a row in a winning streak. This is especially important considering that the publication contains oils from all over the world, ie from 54 olive-growing countries, and Istrian olive growers found themselves in the company of The top 500 with a total share of as much as 14 percent.  Interestingly, Istria itself has more edma listed than the superpower of Spain, which is the world’s largest producer of edma and which is divided into 11 large olive-growing regions due to its size; a total of 61 olive growers from Spain were included The guide will soon see the light of day, ie on 884 pages it will be published in two language variants (Italian-English and Italian-Chinese), and it will present selected countries from 5 continents and 86 world maps of olive groves.

Canada gets China nod to bring home citizens amid epidemic

first_imgCanada’s top diplomat has gotten a nod from his Chinese counterpart to bring home nearly 200 Canadians from Wuhan — the epicenter of the coronavirus epidemic — his office said Friday.In a rare telephone call with Foreign Minister Wang Yi Thursday night, Canada’s Foreign Minister François-Philippe Champagne “asked for the collaboration of the Chinese government in helping those Canadian citizens who want to depart the region.”Wang “responded positively,” he said in a statement. Ottawa chartered a plane to bring back 196 Canadians who asked to be repatriated, but the airlift had remained in limbo this week even as the United States, Japan, South Korea and European nations brought home their nationals.With Wuhan locked down as part of a government effort to contain the epidemic, the Canadian flight required authorization to land in the region.Canada’s relations with its second biggest trading partner have been strained since the arrest on a US warrant of Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou in December 2018 during a flight stopover in Vancouver.China has detained two Canadians, former diplomat Michael Kovrig and businessman Michael Spavor, in apparent retaliation. It also blocked Canadian agricultural shipments.The first phase of a court hearing of a US request for Meng’s extradition as held earlier this month, and is scheduled to resume in April.Kovrig and Spavor, meanwhile, remain in China’s opaque penal system.Champagne’s office said he also raised the plight of the detained Canadians with Wang, adding: “The two agreed to remain in touch on issues of mutual importance.”Topics :last_img read more

Ultra-rare snowfall carpets Baghdad

first_imgThe people of Baghdad are more used to heat than cold.The highest temperature recorded in the capital was a searing 51 degrees Celsius (124 degrees Fahrenheit), a record it has neared several times in recent years.South of the capital, snow also carpeted the Shiite holy city of Karbala, which draws pilgrims from round the world to its famed shrines, the golden-domed mausoleums of Abbas and Imam Hussein.Snowfall is more common in northern Iraq, where snow covered the war-battered city of Mosul, but in the center and south there is rarely enough precipitation.Iraq has been hit by a succession of extreme weather events in recent years.In 2018, chronic water shortages sparked a health crisis in the center and south but the following year, heavy rains caused deadly flooding and heavy damage to homes and crops.Blistering temperatures then hit the north triggering wild fires and scorching crops. Experts say Iraq lacks the funding or infrastructure to cope with climate change and the desertification of once productive land.  Residents of Baghdad rushed to have snowball fights or take photographs Tuesday as the Iraqi capital woke carpeted in white by only its second snowfall in a century.The last recorded snowfall in the city was in 2008, but it was a quick and mostly slushy affair — and prior to that, it had been a century since Baghdad saw any flakes. Iraqis young and old said it was the first time they had ever seen snow falling in Baghdad. The city’s iconic palm trees were daintily outlined in white, and the tarpaulins of the long-running anti-government protest camp in Tahrir Square in the city center were sprinkled with snow. People on their way to work stopped their cars to snap pictures or break out into impromptu snowball fights. “Snowfall may continue until Wednesday given the very cold weather,” said Amer al-Jaberi, media head of the Iraqi Meteorological Center. “This cold wave came from Europe,” he told AFP. center_img Topics :last_img read more
