Employee Health and Wellbeing Workshops

Organisations are increasingly understanding the importance of employee wellbeing and the advantages of a healthy workforce. Those within a corporate environment feel valued and nurtured when offered access to high quality advice to maintain fitness and health. Workshops are designed with team building exercises and interactive sessions to ensure the programme is both instructive and enjoyable for all participants. 

Supporting trade events.jpeg

Supporting events for Trade Associations and Businesses

Trade Associations, countries who depend on agricultural exports and individual businesses involved in all aspects of the Mediterranean Diet and lifestyle including food production have a significant opportunity to gain leverage in markets through education of consumers. These consumers are increasingly focused on the importance of health. Education, whether online or through trade or other events, empowers all those involved from "farm to fork" to understand the importance of maximising the understanding of the benefits of Mediterranean products on health. The voice of an independent, international authoritative expert with experience in research, public and patient facing work is immeasurably powerful.

Olive Oil Tasting Education

Olive oil tasting seminars are an excellent and fun way to become familiar with the wide range of extra virgin olive oils, their health and sensory profiles, as well as practical guidance on getting the most out of extra virgin olive oil in the kitchen and pairing with different foods. Seminars can be arranged with leading international sommeliers and competition judges as well as acclaimed chefs including Masterchef winners in the UK and abroad.
