Dieter Oberg
has headed the Informationsgemeinschaft Olivenöl for 35 years, founded and headed the German Olive Oil Panel (DOP) for 17 years, which developed the current valid sensory test standards in Europe. He advises the European Union, Stiftung Warentest, many institutes and olive oil producers in Europe. And he is a juror in tens of recognized olive oil test panels such as the “GOOL – global Olive Oil Award”. There is no one more competent in Germany when it comes to olive oil.

Due to our long-standing relationship, Dieter Oberg has agreed to conduct a closed olive oil sensory seminar for our Community & Friends. However, this requires a minimum participation of 15 participants. Therefore, we ask you to tell us in advance if you would be generally interested in an olive oil seminar. When enough do this, we start to plan concretely.

Please let us know if you are generally interested in an olive oil seminar with Dieter Oberg. Depending on the number of interested parties, we start with the concrete planning.
