The NYIOOC World Olive Oil Com­pe­ti­tion began unveil­ing the 2020 win­ners today through an inter­ac­tive pre­sen­ta­tion on its offi­cial results web­site.

The reveal began at 9:00 AM, New York time, and will con­tinue until noon today and each day this week, orga­niz­ers said.

Pro­duc­ers, dis­trib­u­tors, retail­ers, chefs and food indus­try pro­fes­sion­als watch the list of win­ners, which is widely seen as the author­i­ta­tive guide to the year’s high-qual­ity olive oils.

Olive Oil Times jour­nal­ists in every region began con­tact­ing win­ning pro­duc­ers who some­how man­aged to craft prod­ucts of such excel­lence in a year marked by chal­lenges at every turn.

There were 881 entries reg­is­tered in this eighth edi­tion of the NYIOOC before the coro­n­avirus brought the world to a stand­still. In early March, the NYIOOC announced it had devel­oped a plan to judge remotely amid the lock­down.


Cur­tis Cord, the NYIOOC founder and pres­i­dent said today he was extremely sat­is­fied” with the results of the com­pe­ti­tion and the work of his 17-mem­ber panel of experts.

Our data analy­sis, cross-check­ing and con­trols have shown that the remote-judg­ing sys­tem we designed and the pro­fes­sion­al­ism and ded­i­ca­tion of our expert judges have met and exceeded our high stan­dards,” said Cord.

The NYIOOC World Olive Oil Com­pe­ti­tion, held each spring, is the world’s largest and most pres­ti­gious olive oil con­test.

The com­plete results are pre­sented on the Offi­cial Index of the World’s Best Olive Oils in a new design that debuted today that includes a retail loca­tor that helps every­one find an award-win­ning oil nearby.

Win­ning brands can also be found on the Best Olive Oils Mar­ket­place, an e‑commerce plat­form where NYIOOC win­ners are offered directly from pro­duc­ers and their dis­trib­u­tors.
