Australia’s lead­ing olive oil com­pany, Boundary Bend, which was already the world’s most awarded pro­ducer at the New York International Olive Oil Competition (NYIOOC), added to their lead Wednesday with an unprece­dented nine awards, includ­ing 2 Best in Class and 3 Gold for their flag­ship brand, Cobram Estate.
The inno­v­a­tive pro­ducer, which prac­tices high-den­sity farm­ing meth­ods and state-of-the-art pro­duc­tion tech­niques recently opened a pro­cess­ing facil­ity in California with the aim of build­ing its mar­ket share in the United States and beyond.

Another Australian pro­ducer, Alto Olives took home 2 Best in Class Awards for its Alto Robust and Alto Vividus brands.

NYIOOC pres­i­dent, Curtis Cord called Boundary Bend’s win­ning streak sim­ply stun­ning” at the tele­vised press con­fer­ence announc­ing the results of the third edi­tion of the world’s largest and most pres­ti­gious olive oil qual­ity com­pe­ti­tion.

Boundary Bend CEO Rob McGavin and Adam Englehardt, pres­i­dent of the U.S. oper­a­tions, were on hand to col­lect the awards. We are thrilled and proud that we have achieved this ongo­ing suc­cess and recog­ni­tion at such an esteemed inter­na­tional event,” McGavin said from New York.

Consumer pref­er­ences for olive oil are chang­ing quickly. Whereas once an olive oil had to come from Europe, today’s con­sumer is seek­ing the high­est qual­ity oils from around the world, and Australia is quickly gain­ing recog­ni­tion as a sup­plier of the high­est cal­iber,” McGavin said. On the strong start of his new California prod­ucts, he added, It is very sat­is­fy­ing that our Aussie style, Californian grown olive oils have per­formed so well.”
