In the 2020/21 crop year, the company produced 200 tons of organic extra virgin olive oil from Chemlali and Chetoui olives using traditional methods. Olivko once again earned the Gold Awards for an organic delicate Chemlali and an organic medium blend.
"The NYIOOC is the most prestigious competition in the world and it has a very special place in my heart," owner Karim Fitouri said. "An award at the NYIOOC is a confirmation of the good quality of our extra virgin olive oil."
After the record-breaking harvest of 2019, Tunisia had a relatively low yield in 2020. Fitouri said that this kind of fluctuation and uncertainty is all part of the fun of being an olive farmer.
"Every year is a challenge, but it is also part of the fun being a producer of extra virgin olive oil, as every year you are gaining an experience how to deal with it," he said.
The NYIOOC World Olive Oil Competition is the world's largest and most prestigious olive oil contest. The annual listing of award winners is considered the authoritative guide to the year’s best extra virgin olive oils.
