GREETINGS FROM SEVILLE!
IBC Visit to Basilippo
IBC students made a visit to one of the most well-known gourmet olive oil companies in Andalucía, Basilippo. During the visit, students toured the grounds of Basilippo, learned about the cultivation process, the importance of “speaking to the trees”, the difference between virgin olive oil and extra virgin olive oil, as well as heard from exportation and marketing managers. The visit ended with an olive-oil tasting.
