Prosperato Extend NYIOOC Win Streak With 2 Gold Awards

4 months agoBy Daniel Dawson

Brazilian producer Prosperato has won two Gold Awards at the 2021 NYIOOC World Olive Oil Competition, the world's most prestigious olive oil quality contest.

Winning at the NYIOOC always makes us feel super happy and proud of the work we have been doing. It is not only a single prize we get now for our olive oils, but when we look back at past years, we see the constant results of improving quality.

Rafael Marchetti, CEO

The company produces extra virgin olive oil in Rio Grande do Sul from a blend of olives using traditional methods. Prosperato earned the Gold Awards for its premium blend and medium Koroneiki.

"Winning at the NYIOOC always makes us feel super happy and proud of the work we have been doing," Rafael Marchetti, the company's CEO, said. "It is not only a single prize we get now for our olive oils, but when we look back at past years, we see the constant results of improving quality."

"This shows the commitment to what we have preached since our first olive oil in 2013 to our customers," he added.

Despite the challenges of harvesting during the Covid-19 pandemic, Marchetti said that the company overcame the difficulties and enjoyed a higher-than-expected yield.

"We faced two lockdowns in our region during the harvest this year and for a week we were not even sure if we could open the mill," he said. "Some people were scared of coming to work, making everything more difficult. Fortunately, we managed to go through this with safety and responsibility, and we finished another greater than expected harvest."

The NYIOOC World Olive Oil Competition, held each spring, 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.
