Coratina

Coratina olives are widely grown in the southern region of Puglia in Italy. This variety is known for producing an oil that is robust and flavorful, with a fruity aroma and a slightly bitter taste. The olives are typically harvested when green and unripe to produce a high-quality extra-virgin olive oil rich in polyphenols, which have been shown to have numerous health benefits, including reducing inflammation and lowering the risk of heart disease.

People Behind the Winning Brands

Miguel Miralles

Balearic Islands-based Treurer earned its second-straight World Competition accolade for a medium-intensity Arbequina.

“Obtaining a Gold Award at the NYIOOC is a great success for our olive oil, as it recognizes the effort made during a whole year to obtain world-class olive oil,” said owner Miguel Miralles. “Every year, we have focused on improving the quality of our olive oil. In particular, in the last harvest, we managed to reduce the time from harvesting to oil production to just one hour, which has resulted in a significant increase in the organoleptic properties of Treurer olive oil.”
