The NYIOOC World Olive Oil Competition has offi­cially opened reg­is­tra­tion for pro­duc­ers who wish to par­tic­i­pate in the 9th edi­tion of the annual con­test.

The NYIOOC is the largest and most pres­ti­gious olive oil qual­ity awards event, and each year’s win­ners are con­sid­ered to be the world’s best extra vir­gin olive oils.

The 2020 edi­tion saw 871 entries from 26 coun­tries. The results were unveiled in real-time, allow­ing pro­duc­ers and the pub­lic to fol­low the awards as they unfolded. More than 28,000 tuned in dur­ing the 5‑day live stream.

Award win­ners are pre­sented on the Official Guide to the World’s Best Olive Oils — the world’s most vis­ited guide to high-qual­ity extra vir­gin olive oils and the pro­duc­ers who craft them.


A recently-launched retail loca­tor fea­ture of the guide assists the pub­lic in find­ing award-win­ning EVOOs in nearby shops and through online ven­dors.

More than 400 arti­cles have been writ­ten on the 2020 award-win­ning pro­duc­ers in inter­na­tional media out­lets, includ­ing dis­patches by Olive Oil Times jour­nal­ists who cover the results of the annual con­test.

Earning a dis­tinc­tion at the NYIOOC opens doors for pro­duc­ers aim­ing to dif­fer­en­ti­ate their brands in the crowded mar­ket­place. Distributors, food indus­try pro­fes­sion­als and buy­ers closely fol­low the com­pe­ti­tion results.

Extra vir­gin olive oil brands may be entered in the com­pe­ti­tion on the NYIOOC Producer Tools por­tal by any com­pany or orga­ni­za­tion respon­si­ble for the prod­uct, includ­ing farms, mills, coop­er­a­tives, bot­tlers, importers, dis­trib­u­tors, or mar­keters.

Early reg­is­tra­tion closes on January 1, 2021. The results will be announced in May.
