The Best Olive Oils Marketplace, an online e-commerce platform featuring the winners of the New York International Olive Oil Competition (NYIOOC), is set to launch in just a few days.
The Marketplace is an initiative, developed by NYIOOC over the past year, where people and businesses can buy winning oils from merchants who stock them in a seamless, online experience optimized for every device.
Curtis Cord, the NYIOOC president, announced the initiative last month at ain New York.
The new Marketplace is integrated within bestoliveoils.com — the official results website of NYIOOC — where a new “Buy Now” button will soon appear beside the winning brands.
Marketplace products will be promoted throughout the pages of Olive Oil Times — the world’s most popular website for olive oil news and information — and other channels.
More than 100 distributors and retailers have established an account on the platform and are set to sell their products when the site launches to the public.
Vendors, including retailers, importers and distributors, manage their inventory, pricing and profiles right on the site, generate shipping labels and packing slips on the platform, and ship orders directly to their Marketplace customers.
Buyers, including consumers and verified wholesale customers such as retailers and restaurants, simply choose which winning oils they wish to buy and they can track their order all the way to their door.
Vendors of NYIOOC award winners who ship from U.S. warehouses can register to sell on the Marketplace here. International orders are planned in a future release.
