OPG Šoša Triumphant at 2023 NYIOOC

a year agoBy OOT Staff

OPG Šoša from Croatia has won its second-straight award at the world's largest olive oil competition.

So far, we have received many awards for our oils, but this one is our favorite. To be among the best in such a large international competition is truly a great honor, pleasure and recognition.

Božidar Šoša, co-owner

The Dalmatian family farm earned a Gold Award at the 2023 NYIOOC World Olive Oil Competition for its Pudarica brand, an organic medium Coratina. Pudarica previously won a Silver Award in 2022.

"So far, we have received many awards for our oils, but this one is our favorite," co-owner Božidar Šoša said. "To be among the best in such a large international competition is truly a great honor, pleasure and recognition."

In the 2022/23 crop year, OPG Šoša produced 1,000 liters of extra virgin olive oil using traditional methods.

"This year's harvest was above expectations even though the summer was very dry with high temperatures, and the olive trees suffered a lot," Šoša said. "The harvest started very early - at the beginning of October, so the yields were not great, but the oil is of extra high quality."

The NYIOOC World Olive Oil Competition held each spring in New York, is the world's 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.
