In the 2020/21 crop year, the company produced 100 tons of extra virgin olive oil from Arbosana, Koroneiki and Arbequina olives using machine methods. Al Maida Agricultural earned the two Gold Awards for a delicate Arbosana and medium Arbequina. The company earned the Silver Award for its delicate Koroneiki.

"We are delighted to have achieved outstanding results at the NYIOOC," co-owner Amelia Bilbeisi said. "To be recognized in such a prestigious competition is an achievement that motivates us to continue our journey producing oil to the highest standards."

"Continuing our fathers' dream of sustainability and excellence is encouraged further by such recognition," she added.

Bilbeisi said that 2020 was a challenging year for Al Maida Agricultural and other producers in Jordan, both due to the Covid-19 pandemic and tough climatic conditions.

"It was a challenging year not only with the global pandemic but very high temperatures for prolonged periods in our region," she said.
