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 a press con­fer­ence in New York.

The new Marketplace is inte­grated within — 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.
