International extra virgin olive oil competition 2020 Mario Solinas quality award Ioc prize winners and finalists

Some 157 samples of extra virgin olive oil were entered into this year’s Mario Solinas Quality Award. Hailing from 13 countries from all over the world, the samples were judged by an international panel of eight expert olive oil tasters.

This competition has a bit of history here at the IOC. Named after a noted researcher who made a huge contribution to standardising quality criteria, the award was approved by the Council in 1993 and has taken place every year uninterrupted since the 2000/2001 crop year.

The aim of the competition is to push olive growers, businesses and packagers to produce the best quality extra virgin olive oil, and encourage consumers to recognise the distinct organoleptic characteristics.
Here are the results of the Mario Solinas Quality Award 2020: HERE

Signature recipe: Chocolate bread pudding with evoo

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
