“The olive oil industry in India is small and largely people use it more for cosmetic purposes than for cooking. We foresee many Indian’s moving to better cooking mediums like Olive oil for health and wellness reasons. Olive Oil has always been placed somewhere between food and medicine and the biggest challenge for us is to educate Indian consumer on the benefits of olive oil as a cooking medium. We see a tremendous potential for this category in India in the future,” said Bipin Vengsarkar, Executive Director of J.L. Morison (India) Ltd.
Speaking on the occasion, Master Chef Sanjeev Kapoor said, “Every bottle, down to last drop of Carbonell oil, captures the essence of Spain. Research also documents the important antioxidant function of olive oil, which prevents arteriosclerosis that can lead to heart attacks and paralytic strokes. Olive-enriched diets control blood pressures levels, reduces cancer risk, treats insulin resistance and obesity unlike oils rich in linoleic acid and foods rich in saturated fats. Taste and flavor of the Indian cuisine can be retained using olive oil.”
