5 months agoBy OOT Staff

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

Winning a prize at the NYIOOC for the third year in a row fills us up with joy and entrenches our commitment to consistently produce an outstanding organic extra virgin olive oil using traditional methods.

Andrew Federico William Langford, CEO

For the third consecutive year, the Sicilian producer earned took home an NYIOOC accolade for its Gorgone brand, an organic medium Crastu. However, he admitted it was not easy.

"Using traditional and non-invasive agricultural techniques might pose some hard challenges, given the variability of climate in the last years," said Andrew Federico William Langford, the company's chief executive.

"However, winning a prize at the NYIOOC for the third year in a row fills us up with joy and entrenches our commitment to consistently produce an outstanding organic extra virgin olive oil using traditional methods," he added.

Langford is also feeling optimistic for the coming harvest after an excellent start to 2022.

"2022 has been very generous with us as far as the harvest is concerned," he said.

"In contrast with last year, this year, the climate conditions in our region have been perfect for our olive trees to produce an outstanding extra virgin olive oil," Langford added. "Both quality and quantity have been remarkable and we, therefore, hope to share our product with many new customers."

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.
