The results of the 2021 NYIOOC World Olive Oil Competition will be revealed May 24 through May 27 from 9 o’clock AM until noon (UTC ‑4) on the Official Guide to the World’s Best Olive Oils.

The four-day online pre­sen­ta­tion will unveil each win­ning brand at the moment its result is cer­ti­fied by the NYIOOC.

In a year marked by chal­lenges stem­ming from a global pan­demic, cli­mate change and mar­ket head­winds, pro­duc­ers in every olive oil-pro­duc­ing region turned out in record num­bers to com­pete in the world’s largest and most pres­ti­gious olive oil qual­ity con­test.

The NYIOOC received 1,171 entries for the 2021 edi­tion, break­ing the pre­vi­ous record of 1,003 set in 2018.

The results of the NYIOOC are closely fol­lowed by food indus­try pro­fes­sion­als, media and oth­ers con­cerned with the qual­ity of the olive oil they buy.


More than 40,000 view­ers wit­nessed last year’s real-time roll­out of the win­ners on bestoliveoils.org, where the offi­cial results are pre­sented. Each year, mil­lions of vis­i­tors to the por­tal learn about the awarded pro­duc­ers.

More than 600 arti­cles have been writ­ten on the 2020 award-win­ning pro­duc­ers in inter­na­tional media out­lets, includ­ing dis­patches by Olive Oil Times jour­nal­ists who closely cover the results of the annual con­test.

Earning a dis­tinc­tion at the NYIOOC opens doors for pro­duc­ers striv­ing to dif­fer­en­ti­ate their brands in the crowded mar­ket­place. Importers, dis­trib­u­tors and traders use the com­pe­ti­tion results as a short­list for their buy­ing deci­sions.
