While face-to-face interactions have been off the agenda for the past few months, the Olive Wellness Institute (OWI) has continued to share the science and facts around the benefits of olive products across a range of other channels.
Gaining high-profile coverage, the OWI supported a recent edition of Channel 10’s My Market Kitchen featuring Australian olive oil, providing both information and Olive Wellness Institute Australian Extra Virgin Olive Oil for a cooking session.
My Market Kitchen is a daily free-to-air TV program broadcast nationally on the metro Ten Network and the WIN Television Regional Network. Screening at 3.30-4pm Monday to Friday, and on 10play, the show promotes and celebrates Australian producers and products, inspiring viewers to enjoy local fresh produce every day.
Episode 3 saw Hort Innovation’s Research and Development Manager, Dietitian and Nutritionist Jemma O’Hanlon, preparing a winter breakfast dish at the Prahran markets. Using EVOO as the cooking medium, she gave consumers some great information about the nutritional benefits of olive oil, it’s suitability for frying, and how to identify high quality, fresh, Australian EVOO when you’re shopping.
