The company produces extra virgin olive oil from Koroneiki olives using traditional harvesting methods.
The 2019/2020 season was fortuitous for the company, owner Ben Ayed Salah said.
"2019 was an exceptional year for our field apart from a lack of manpower due to a record harvest in Tunisia. Our challenge was to produce for our first year an excellent quality oil with our own two-phase oil mill," Ayed Salah said.
Blend No. 3, a medium intensity blend, and Koroneiki No. 5, a medium Koroneiki, were the winning oils.
"We are proud and happy to have been medaled by this prestigious competition for our first international trip. This will allow us to work harder and improve and maintain an exceptional quality of extra virgin oil," Ayed Salah said.
The NYIOOC World Olive Oil Competition, held each spring in New York, is the world's largest and most prestigious olive oil contest and its annual listing of award winners is considered the authoritative guide to the year’s best extra virgin olive oils.
