Sergio Delle Monache Awarded Gold Awards for Tamia
Being awarded at the NYIOOC makes us very proud every year and, at the same time, pushes us to improve ourselves.Pietro Re, CEO
Located in Lazio, home to the Italian capital, the producer continued its legacy of success at the world's most prestigious olive oil quality contest with awards for its Tamia brand, an organic medium Caninese, and Tamia Gold brand, an organic medium blend.
"Being awarded at the NYIOOC makes us very proud every year and, at the same time, pushes us to improve ourselves," said Pietro Re, the company's chief executive.
Since 2015, the 100-year-old company has won 14 Gold Awards and a Silver Award for a range of extra virgin olive oil blends and monovarietals.
With all the challenges associated with olive oil production, Re said the secret to the company's success lies in the details of the operation.
"Despite a challenging period, we have obtained a spectacular olive oil, thanks to the extreme attention we pay in the entire harvest and milling process," he said.
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.
