With just four weeks until the New York International Olive Oil Competition, orga­niz­ers are prepar­ing for another record num­ber of entries from dozens of coun­tries in the world’s largest and most pres­ti­gious olive oil qual­ity com­pe­ti­tion.

Despite one of the most chal­leng­ing har­vest sea­sons in recent mem­ory in many regions, as many as 700 olive oils will com­pete for the cov­eted Gold, Silver and Best in Class awards and to be among the best olive oils in the world, as the win­ners of the annual con­test are known.

We are extremely pleased that so many return­ing pro­duc­ers and first-time entries see how win­ning in New York can ele­vate their brand,” said NYIOOC pres­i­dent Curtis Cord. Finding more ways to rec­og­nize the world’s best olive oil pro­duc­ers is what we do every day.”

A press con­fer­ence announc­ing the results of the com­pe­ti­tion will be broad­cast live at 6:00 PM (22:00 UTC) on April 15th through the NYIOOC web­site and syn­di­cated through inter­na­tional media chan­nels. Complete results will imme­di­ately appear on the offi­cial results web­site, bestoliveoils.org, with a strik­ing new design that will be unveiled at the same time.

bestoliveoils.org is the sec­ond-most pop­u­lar olive oil web­site in the world, behind Olive Oil Times, the main spon­sor of the event. The Best Olive Oils web­site has become the most trusted resource for peo­ple who want to find the year’s high­est rated olive oil brands,” Cord said. We’ve built new, use­ful fea­tures into a cut­ting-edge design to make it even more valu­able for buy­ers and the pro­duc­ers of the win­ning brands.” The new site will go live at exactly the moment the com­pe­ti­tion results are made pub­lic.

The announce­ment of the results will cap an all-day con­fer­ence at the International Culinary Center (ICC) in New York’s Soho neigh­bor­hood which will explore the cul­tural con­text of olive oil and pre­dic­tions for its future.” Speakers at the con­fer­ence will include the fash­ion designer Norma Kamali, Lionsgate Entertainment founder and phil­an­thropist Frank Giustra, Oldways pres­i­dent Sara Baer-Sinnott, ICC founder Dorothy Cann-Hamilton and many oth­ers.


Conference atten­dees will be the first to taste the newly-crowned NYIOOC win­ners at an awards recep­tion hosted by the International Culinary Center imme­di­ately fol­low­ing the unveil­ing.
