Two Croatian extra virgin olive oils submitted by the Union of Associations of Olive Growers have been awarded at the 2022 NYIOOC World Olive Oil Competition.

It’s a nice feeling to participate for the first time and get Gold and Silver Awards We sent our two brands and these results show us that we are doing well.

Ivica Ljubenkov said about the award

Dalmatinsko, a medium blend produced by Zumah, earned a Gold Award at the world's most prestigious olive oil quality competition. Meanwhile, Zlatna Oblica, a delicate Oblica from Damir Zečić, earned a Silver Award.

"It’s a nice feeling to participate for the first time and get Gold and Silver Awards," said Ivica Ljubenkov, the union's chief executive. "We sent our two brands, and these results show us that we are doing well. We will use them in the marketing of our oils."

Both oils were produced in Dalmatia, and the two awards cap off an otherwise excellent harvest season for local producers.

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.
