During this festive weekend Corsican olive oil is in the spotlight. It is an opportunity for visitors to taste it in a friendly atmosphere with the different producers while exchanging on its production.

In addition to these demonstrations public meetings and discussions around the sector are also organized in the presence of the various island officials. If all the agro-food sectors are represented, the event also gives pride of place to island crafts.

On the program of the Montegrosso olive tree fair: nearly sixty exhibitors from different micro-regions of Corsica to showcase local products, their know-how and thus exchange and share their passion with a large audience.
