Six Firms Vie to Promote Olive Oil in North America

By Julie Butler / Reporting from Barcelona

Six firms are vying for a 1.2 million euro ($1.7 million) contract to promote olive oil and olive consumption in the world’s biggest import market – the U.S. – and Canada.

The deadline to have proposals postmarked was May 17. Bids from five North American and one European firm were officially opened this morning in Madrid by the International Olive Council (IOC) who will now use external experts to evaluate the proposals in time for the successful agency to start in July.
