I was born in 1981 in Eskisehir. I am married and have three children. In 2003 I graduated from Uludağ University Food Engineering. In 2006 I completed my Master’s degree in Food Engineering at Uludağ University. I started the doctorate in Ege University Food Engineering in 2014 about oils and fats technology- olive oils and phenolic. After I worked as a project manager in a private company in 2003, I started to refer to it in the Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Livestock, General Directorate of Protection and Control in 2005.
I settled in Bursa in 2007 and started to work as a specialist researcher at the Central Research Institute for Food and Feed Control (“oil technology” – as an area of expertise) – and I still continue to work here. I am also responsible for doing and create projects with EU & Turkey Collaboration. I started studying tasting related to olive oil, one of the subjects I worked in 2010, and got the title of Professional Olive Oil Taster at ONAOO, the first international school in Italy and number one in the world. I am still continuing my education. I have organized olive oil tasting trainings with ONAOO, workshops and at the world’s most famous capital cities (Paris, Roma, Barcelona, Amsterdam, Morocco, Tunisia and Istanbul). I am a member of the jury in various competitions organized in various countries and cities of the World like Tunisia, Paris, London, San Remo, Verona. I was a co-organiser and moderator of three of the olive oil competition held in Turkey. I took part in three training sessions held as a tutorial with ONAOO in Turkey and I work as a professional olive oil taster and a teacher at ONAOO.
OLIVE OIL CULTURE
In recent times, organizations that deal with olive oil tasting training have multiplied. It follows that more and more people graduate as tasters.
On one hand, ONAOO is pleased to have been the initiator of a phenomenon that interests because it creates an “olive culture” that is perceived as a necessity for market and consumers.
Considering our experience, we can say that follow the whole ONAOO path is a distinctive hallmark as well as be enrolled in the INTERNATIONAL REGISTER OF ONAOO PROFESSIONAL TASTERS
This entry opens the door to all the opportunity that the oil world offers to the professional taster and is a real value, not only added, but fundamental, for the definition of an effective and convincing operating profile.
