Commissioned by the GIZ project Initiative pour la Promotion des Filières Agricoles (IPFA) in Tunisia, Gustavo Ferro landed in Tunis for the Olive Oil Day. He disseminated the main results  of a tailored study on the German market for olive oil and composed the panel of experts. The study was completed in 2015, in collaboration with CBI, IPD and Klaus Duerbeck Consulting. It is available online on the CBI website.


The Olive Oil Day (25 May) was attended by more than 45 participants, mainly composed of olive oil companies. Gustavo Ferro and other sector experts, importers and institution representatives engaged in a discussion on the opportunities and challenges on the German olive oil market.

The discussions successfully addressed issues such as product specifications, buyer requirements, consumer preferences, market size and developments.

The Olive Oil Day was organised by the Centre Technique de l’Emballage et du Conditionnement (PACKTEC), in collaboration with the German Import Promotion Desk (IPD) and GIZ’s projects in Tunisia: Initiative pour la Promotion des Filières Agricoles and Innovation, Développement Economique Régional et Emploi.
