The NYIOOC World Olive Oil Competition will begin unveil­ing award win­ners in the Southern Hemisphere divi­sion of the annual qual­ity con­test.

Competition orga­niz­ers said they would release the results in three batches, with the first win­ners announced on Monday, September 4th, at 9:00 AM in New York (14:00 UTC). More results will be released in mid-September, and the final out­comes will be announced in early October.

Earlier this year, the NYIOOC revealed the win­ners from Northern Hemisphere coun­tries.

Producers in the Northern Hemisphere har­vest from September to January, while most Southern Hemisphere grow­ers col­lect their fruits from March through July. The NYIOOC con­ducts its analy­ses accord­ingly and pub­li­cizes the two sets of results to inform the pub­lic and food indus­try pro­fes­sion­als on top-rated brands at their peak of fresh­ness.

Award-win­ning brands are pre­sented in the Official Guide to the World’s Best Olive Oils and in par­tic­u­lar sec­tions of Olive Oil Times.

More than 1,100 brands from 30 coun­tries have par­tic­i­pated in the 2023 NYIOOC, the eleventh edi­tion of the world’s largest and most pres­ti­gious olive oil qual­ity com­pe­ti­tion.
