Producers of 100% Tunisian olive oil will offer the unique tastes of this southern Mediterranean delicacy with a history that dates back thousands of years.

The Tunisian Ministry of Industry proudly announces that '100% Tunisian' olive oil will return to the US, with a select group of producers, and will be featured at the Summer Fancy Food Show in New York, June 27-29, 2010.

Tunisia's extra virgin olive oil is highly regarded around the world for its extraordinary taste, color and aroma. Thanks to a distinctive Southern Mediterranean 'terroir' and unique varietals in the mild, Mediterranean climate, Tunisia has a deep-rooted history and culture in the production of olive oil dating back thousands of years. Located at the tip of Africa's northern coast, just 60 nautical miles from the island of Sicily, Tunisia is the world's fourth largest producer of olive oil.

Tunisian olive oil, because of its sweet taste and unique chemlali, chetoui, and oueslati olive varieties, has been used as a blending additive to soften the harsh taste of inferior oils for centuries. But with recent concerns over the quality of some "extra virgin" olive oils, '100% Tunisian' is quickly becoming one of the most sought after brands worldwide.

"Tunisia's olive oil crop has long been revered for its mild, fruity taste and exceptional quality," says pavilion organizer and Packtec Director General, Mme. Lémia Thabet. "We want the world to taste 100% Tunisian olive oil in its pure state, not mixed with other oils, so they can experience the full taste treat of this delicious fruit juice."

A variety of excellent '100% Tunisian' extra virgin olive oils including kosher and organic--will be available for tasting at the Summer Fancy Food Show Booth #1830 on the main floor of the Javits Center International Pavilion in New York June 27-29.
