Avistria Awarded at World Olive Oil Competition
We are very proud that three of our oils have been awarded at the competition. Our Istrian Blend got its award for the second time, which is a big success, as we started blending just one year ago.Rudolf Nemetschke , co-owner
The company produces extra virgin olive oil in Istria from Istria Buza, Leccino, Istrian Bjelica and Pendolino olives using traditional methods.
Avistria earned the Gold Award for a delicate Istria Buza. The company earned the two Silver Awards for a delicate Pendolino and delicate blend.
"We are very proud that three of our oils have been awarded at the competition," co-owner Rudolf Nemetschke said. "Our Istrian Blend got its award for the second time, which is a big success, as we started blending just one year ago."
"Participation in competitions is the most important factor of quality control in our company," he added. "The next step will be the review of all production steps on basis of the results."
"Travelling was restricted in 2020, which resulted in a lot of management challenges," he said. "In parts of the olive groves, we had problems with the olive fruit fly, especially with one autochthone variety shortly before the start of the harvest."
