Now, restau­rants and spe­cialty retail­ers can rest assured they are buy­ing only extra vir­gin olive oils that have achieved out­stand­ing marks for qual­ity at this year’s New York International Olive Oil Competition,” said NYIOOC pres­i­dent, Curtis Cord.

It should­n’t be a guess­ing game when it comes to buy­ing good olive oil, and it should­n’t be a deci­sion based on pretty pack­ag­ing or on pric­ing alone.”



The Marketplace fea­tures only extra vir­gin olive oils that were awarded at the NYIOOC — the largest and most pres­ti­gious olive oil qual­ity con­test in the world held each April in New York. This year’s com­pe­ti­tion eval­u­ated more than 820 entries from 26 coun­tries in the most exten­sive olive oil qual­ity assess­ment ever con­ducted.

Wholesale buy­ers for retail shops, restau­rants, and other food busi­nesses can reg­is­ter on the plat­form to buy in bulk. Once approved, they can browse the win­ning oils, place an order, and track their ship­ments right to their door.

The web­site is opti­mized for ease of use on all devices and ven­dors are rated for fast order dis­patch­ing and qual­ity sup­port.

The Best Olive Oils Marketplace was jointly devel­oped by the New York International Olive Oil Competition and Olive Oil Times. In announc­ing the launch of the por­tal in April, Cord said: With the intro­duc­tion of this inno­v­a­tive plat­form, we will help the pro­duc­ers and sell­ers of these high-qual­ity prod­ucts reach a much larger audi­ence — and that lies at the very heart of our mis­sion.”

At this time, the Marketplace is open to buy­ers in the United States only but, Cord noted, inter­na­tional order­ing is being devel­oped for an upcom­ing release.
