After four days of the ana­lyz­ing 910 olive oils from 27 coun­tries, the New York International Olive Oil Competition (NYIOOC) will unveil this year’s award win­ners at a press con­fer­ence tonight.

Our judg­ing panel and sup­port teams have worked tire­lessly through­out the week and I’m very pleased with the results.- Curtis Cord, NYIOOC President

The 5:30 PM (EDT) announce­ment will be streamed live via Facebook and on the offi­cial NYIOOC results web­site, bestoliveoils.com.




The sold-out event will be attended by 200 olive oil pro­duc­ers, dis­trib­u­tors, food indus­try pro­fes­sion­als and the inter­na­tional media.

This is the fifth year of the com­pe­ti­tion and the largest of its kind. Fifteen experts from every olive oil-pro­duc­ing region make up the elite panel of judges who sniff and sip blind sam­ples to deter­mine the cream of this year’s crop.

Curtis Cord, the founder of the NYIOOC and the pub­lisher of Olive Oil Times said today that the pro­ceed­ings over the four days have gone smoothly. Our judg­ing panel and sup­port teams have worked tire­lessly through­out the week and I’m very pleased with the results,” he said.

The win­ning olive oils are cov­eted by chefs, food buy­ers and dis­cern­ing con­sumers every­where who value extra vir­gin olive oils of the very high­est qual­ity.

Award win­ners will be listed in the Yearly Index of the World’s Best Olive Oils and many will be avail­able through the Best Olive Oils Marketplace, the online por­tal where buy­ers can source the win­ning oils from retail­ers and dis­trib­u­tors who stock them.

The win­ning brands will also be fea­tured in the first annual Guide to the World’s Best Olive Oils,” a printed guide­book that will be avail­able through Amazon and other book­sellers in May.
