a year agoBy OOT Staff

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

We are really proud of our result. We are enthusiastic also because we are a young company, and we got this award in the first year of production.

Marco Recchia, CEO

In the 2020/21 crop year, the company produced seven tons of extra virgin olive oil in Tuscany using traditional methods. Maryamado earned the Gold Award for a medium Pendolino blend.

"We are really proud of our result," Marco Recchia, the company's CEO, said. "We are enthusiastic also because we are a young company, and we got this award in the first year of production."

The producers behind Maryamado enjoyed a bountiful first harvest in Tuscany in 2020 – one of the best in recent memory.

"In 2020/21 we had a late-ripening," he said. "It was a wonderful harvest with olives of strong green color and without parasites."

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.
