Packaging contest. Entries are open

All extra virgin olive oil producers and packers can take part in the fifth edition of the contest Le Forme dell’olio, organized by Olio Officina to further enhance and give increased visibility to olive oils of excellence


Packaging contest. Entries are open

It is not merely aesthetics, there is much more than the beauty of presentation packaging of bottles and containers.

It is worth investing also in functionality. All innovations must help improving usability and ease of use of olive oil, both raw and cooked oil.

Packaging appearance and functionality therefore jointly contribute to innovating the olive oil industry, which has yet much more to invent and propose.

This is the reason for the fifth edition of the international contest Le Forme dell’olio.

Download the contest rules and application form HERE.

Samples can be submitted from 11th September 2017 to 30th November 2017.

Samples must be sent to the following address:

Olio Officina, 
via Giovanni Rasori 9 - 
20145 Milan - Italy

As always, different awards will be given, divided into two macro-categories, from the first to the fifth place:

- Gift packaging award

- Retail oil award

In addition, other special awards for both categories are the following:

- Special award for best label

- Special award for brand line

- Special award for originality and style
- Special award for innovation

A Tuscan PGI oil made by Terre dell’Etruria, a farming cooperative society that has invested all it has on its members, expertly helping and guiding them towards quality and success. The most impressive features of this extra virgin oil, flavour apart, are its remarkable quality/price ratio and extraordinary yield > Luigi Caricato

Marisa Iocco, chef and owner of Spiga Ristorante in Boston, offers us a typically American dessert, very popular and now considered so familiar that it cannot be taken off the menu, as much as it is required. The same dessert was proposed during the communication and training project held at the end of 2019 in Boston, Providence and New York, organized by the quality consortia of extra virgin olive oils Ceq Italia and, for Spain, by QvExtra! with the support of the European Union.

Very few oil producers run blogs. Turri's, with its minimalistic design, is both simple and elegant. It is also available in English: posts are published at regular intervals and dispatched through newsletters > Luigi Caricato


The art of healthy eating

The fruit of tradition, care and a passion for quality. Our story starts here, in Puglia. The beating heart of the Mediterranean Sea. This is the birthplace of our oil-making art, an art that has always considered olives as a living body. Video Spot Corporate by Masseria di Sant'Eramo
