4 months agoBy Daniel Dawson

Brazilian producer Capolivo has won a Silver Award at the 2021 NYIOOC World Olive Oil Competition, the world's most prestigious olive oil quality contest.

It’s a great honor to be recognized by such an important and prestigious contest. We are very thankful for this opportunity and rewarding experience. This prize means a lot to our family and our company because it validates our effort and care.

Joice Capoani, co-owner

In 2020, the company produced 5,000 liters of extra virgin olive oil in Rio Grande do Sul using traditional harvesting methods. Capolivo earned the Silver Award for its medium Koroneiki.

"It’s a great honor to be recognized by such an important and prestigious contest," co-owner Joice Capoani said. "We are very thankful for this opportunity and rewarding experience. This prize means a lot to our family and our company because it validates our effort and care."

For the producers behind Capolivo, this year's Silver Award was all the more gratifying after their challenging harvest, with difficulties ranging from Covid-19 restrictions to the climate.

"Not only were we worried about making our harvest as safe as possible for our employees, but the climate also proved to be a challenge, along with the lack of production materials," Capoani said. "We also faced hardships regarding the market, as the pandemic limited the demand for our products."

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.
