3 years agoBy OOT Staff

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

This award represents a huge recognition to us and shows that we are on the right track.

Bosiljka Belić, CEO

In the 2020/21 crop year, the company produced 9,700 liters of extra virgin olive oil in Istra using traditional methods. Olea B.B. earned the Gold Award for its Oleum Viride Belić brand, a medium Buza.

"This award represents a huge recognition to us and shows that we are on the right track," Bosiljka Belić, the company's CEO, said.

The producer behind Olea B.B. overcame a challenging harvest to earn the award but said he could not have done it without his dedicated team.

"Despite the challenging year, we successfully completed 2020/21 harvest with the enthusiasm of our employees and the help of seasonal workers, while realizing our own goals," Belić said. "Through hard work and commitment, we strive to achieve the highest possible quality."

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.
