Sensory Masterclass

The development of a new industry in new areas with scarce previous information requires not only olive specialists but also experienced and fully qualified experts.


The strength of our team in both areas let us make a careful analysis of the different conditions in order to come up with the best solution for each individual processing plant. Processing plant design, paste preparation, development of systems and procedures and maximizing processing efficiencies as well as storage and blending are some of the areas where our combination of technical knowledge and olive expertise is more significant.

The Modern Olives Technical Team consists of Leandro Ravetti (Technical director), Claudia Guillaume (Olive oil chemistry, sensory and quality), Filippo Daddelli (Technical officer) and Mick Smith (Olive oil processing management).

Topics include :

  • Processing plant design
  • Paste preparation
  • Development of Systems
  • Development of Procedures
  • Maximizing Processing Efficiencies
