8 months agoBy OOT Staff

Olìan from Italy has won a Gold Award at the 2022 NYIOOC World Olive Oil Competition, the world's most prestigious olive oil quality contest.

It is always a pleasure to receive recognition, especially after a difficult year like 2021 that made us face several obstacles.

Pierantonia Congiu, co-owner

The company situated on the Mediterranean island of Sardinia earned its premier NYIOOC award for an organic medium Oliana.

"We are extremely happy and honored to have won the Gold Award with our Olìan. It is always a pleasure to receive recognition, especially after a difficult year like 2021 that made us face several obstacles," co-owner Pierantonia Congiu said.

"An award like this allows us to appreciate all our efforts and makes us more and more proud of our product," she added.

Congiu said that a combination of erratic weather events made the previous harvest particularly challenging.

"2021 was a particularly difficult year," she said. "The harvest was hampered because off erratic weather events like drought and late spring frosts. However, the oil yield was positive and held a high quality."

The NYIOOC World Olive Oil Competition, held each spring in New York, is the world's largest and most prestigious olive oil contest. Its annual listing of award winners is considered the authoritative guide to the year’s best extra virgin olive oils.
