The company Deoleo organizes tomorrow, in the framework of the European project Soil O-Live, a specific training on sustainability. The aim is to promote sustainable olive oil production among farmers. These workshops are held in the framework of the European project Soil O-Live, funded by the European Union and coordinated by the University of Jaén.
The day begins at 18:00 hours in the House of Culture of Los Santos de Maimona, in Badajoz. Admission is free until full capacity is reached.
It will begin with the intervention of Bartolomé Lara, Deoleo technician, who will present to the audience the company’s Sustainability Protocol. Then it will be the turn of the researcher and professor of Ecology at the UJA, Antonio Manzaneda, coordinator of the project. Manzaneda will speak about the main aspects of the Soil O-Live project and will inform about the importance and the care of the vegetal covers in the traditional olive grove.
This European project is supported by a consortium of 17 partners and has a funding of almost 7 million euros under the Soil Heath and Food Mission of the R+D+i program Horizon Europe (European Union’s framework program for research and innovation for the period 2021-2027).
