2 years agoBy Masha Richart

Les Huiles Précieues from Morocco has won a Silver Award for a delicate monovarietal at the 2020 NYIOOC World Olive Oil Competition.

For our first participation, we are simply happy to already be part of the best olive oils in the world. A great boost of motivation in our quest for excellence!

The winning oil was Huile Bleue, a delicate Picholine produced via traditional harvesting methods.

Company owner Franck Salvatori noted that the oil quality was helped by ideal harvest conditions.

"Every harvest is a challenge when one is in a perpetual quest for excellence. However, the conditions around the Moroccan Atlas Mountains were perfect during the harvest. From the beginning of the harvest, our olive grower was very confident about the quality of the oil we will be able to produce. He was not mistaken," Salvatori said.

He said he was grateful that the NYIOOC had committed to running the world's most prestigious olive oil quality contest in the midst of the pandemic.

"With the health crisis, we first of all wanted to congratulate the NYIOOC team for having been able to maintain this exceptional competition. Many thanks. For our first participation, we are simply happy to already be part of the best olive oils in the world. A great boost of motivation in our quest for excellence! To be continued," Salvatori 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.
