Table Olive Tasting Course (25 March 2015)

Linda Costa of Olives In Fact is presenting a table olive sensory training course on the 25th of March, 2015 at Klein Joostenberg.

The training course is to introduce the principles and responsibilities of being a sensory panel member, together with the attributes of table olives that are used internationally for this purpose.
