Presented by the Olive Wellness Institute’s Sarah Gray and Jacqui Plozza, the session will cover the latest olives and health research, and the work being done to ensure health professionals and consumers are informed about the benefits of olive products.

Jacqui will also share her expert knowledge about cooking with EVOO, countering the myth that “you can’t cook with olive oil” – the greatest barrier to increasing consumption of EVOO globally. Everyone in our industry needs to know the facts so we can expose the myth and contribute to educating others that its beneficial to our health to cook with olive oil.
