Registration has opened for the 2015 New York International Olive Oil Competition, and already pro­duc­ers and mar­keters from every region are enter­ing their brands in the annual affair.

Organizers expect more than 700 entries from 25 coun­tries in what is billed as the most impor­tant inter­na­tional olive oil com­pe­ti­tion of the year.

Last year, 254 win­ners were unveiled — hav­ing been bestowed the Best Olive Oils in the World” by an inter­na­tional panel of expert judges — at a press con­fer­ence streamed live around the world. Details of the win­ning oils are indexed on the offi­cial results web­site, bestoliveoils.com.

What’s new for 2015? NYIOOC pres­i­dent, Curtis Cord, said there will be a few changes made to the inner work­ings of the com­pe­ti­tion, but the major push, as always, will be in adding ever more value for win­ning pro­duc­ers.

That is what we do,” Cord said. Our job is to objec­tively iden­tify the best olive oils in the world every April, and then pro­ceed to make those brands known to as many peo­ple as pos­si­ble, all year round.”

Olive oil pro­duc­ers, importers and mar­keters can reg­is­ter their brands for the 2015 com­pe­ti­tion online using the new Producer Tools por­tal NYIOOC has devel­oped. In addi­tion to a stream­lined reg­is­tra­tion process, users can man­age their entries, track sam­ple ship­ments and take advan­tage of a suite of tools designed to build brand expo­sure.

The third edi­tion of the New York International Olive Oil Competition will be held April 14 – 16, 2015. For more infor­ma­tion, visit nyiooc.org.
