Reg­is­tra­tion has opened for the 2020 edi­tion of the NYIOOOC World Olive Oil Com­pe­ti­tion, the world’s largest and most pres­ti­gious olive oil qual­ity con­test.

Pro­duc­ers, importers and dis­trib­u­tors can enter their extra vir­gin olive oil brands on Pro­ducer Tools, the web appli­ca­tion devel­oped by the NYIOOC.

Now in its eighth year, the event is expected to draw up to 1,000 entries from at least two dozen coun­tries.

The brands that are awarded at the NYIOOC join an elite list on the Offi­cial Index of the World’s Best Olive Oils, the pop­u­lar web­site where each year mil­lions of vis­i­tors explore oils of the high­est qual­ity.

The Index now fea­tures a retail loca­tor, which helps peo­ple find award-win­ning olive oils in nearby shops. Orga­niz­ers said the new retail app, offi­cially launched this week, is the next step in the ulti­mate mis­sion of the NYIOOC, which is to help get high-qual­ity olive oils into the kitchens where they deserve to be.


Win­ners of the 2019 NYIOOC and retail mer­chants who offer the win­ning oils can log in to the app to iden­tify retail points where the best olive oils can be found.

Many of the oils are avail­able to buy online via the Best Olive Oils Mar­ket­place, the e‑commerce plat­form devel­oped by NYIOOC where award-win­ners are sold directly by their pro­duc­ers and mer­chants who stock them.

Cur­tis Cord, the founder and pres­i­dent of the NYIOOC and the pub­lisher of Olive Oil Times said this year’s event will be unlike any before, but added it was too early to share details. We’re exam­in­ing every aspect of the event and think­ing out of the box,” he said. We will be intro­duc­ing major inno­va­tions that will add even more value and com­mer­cial suc­cess for these pro­duc­ers who so deserve to be rec­og­nized.”

The 2020 NYIOOC will be held next May.
