Tunisia—birthplace of the ‘Arab Spring’—is bringing its courage, determination, charm, and ‘100% Tunisian’ olive oil to the Summer Fancy Food Show in Washington DC July 10-12. The Tunisian Pavilion begins on the main International Aisle at Booth #4137.
Present at the booth during this year’s show will be a collection of Tunisia’s elite olive oil producers from all regions of the country. These growers/producers represent the backbone of Tunisia’s largest agricultural export, and the culmination of olive oil experience dating back to the 8th century BC.

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 grown 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 enhance the 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 Chekir Thabet. “We are so excited that Americans are appreciating 100% Tunisian olive oil in its pure, unblended state, so they can experience the full taste treat of this delicious fruit juice.”
The US Chamber of Commerce is also hosting an event to honor the Tunisian Embassy and the Fancy Food Show participants at its offices in Washington, DC on July 11 at 6 p.m. Present will be Tunisian Ambassador H.E. Mohamed Salah Tekaya, Monsieur Nouredine AGREBI from Tunisia’s Ministry of Industry & Technology, and Madame Amel TRIFA from Tunisia’s Ministry of Finance.
A variety of excellent ‘100% Tunisian’ extra virgin olive oils including kosher and certified organic—will be available for tasting at the Summer Fancy Food Show Booth #4137 at the Washington Convention Center in Washington DC July 10-12, 2011.
