Champion at its category
Best Flavored Olive Oil (Mejor Saborizado OLIVINUS)
The only Greek olive oil at the champions list
The greatest distinction given to a Greek olive oil at the finals, in all of the 12 years of the Argentinian Olivinus International Competition, one of the highest ranking and most important competitions in Latin America and in the Southern hemisphere countries in general, proven by the 9 / 10 score given to Olivinus by the international ranking system EVOOWorld Ranking.
A greater difficulty for Greek olive oils comes from the fact that the olive oils from the Southern hemisphere are fresh, almost days old, compared to ours that are nearly 1 year old already.
The Olivinus International Olive Oil Competition 2019 took place at Mendoza, Argentina in early September, with participations from 194 olive oil companies, from 18 olive oil producing countries.
At the same time, our organic “Agourelaio” was honoured at the finals by the group of children's olive oil tasters, between the ages of 8-16, at the international competition Olivinus in Argentina with the highest distinction "Selected by Ninos / SELECT by Kids", among the best olive oils in the competition, also the only Greek olive oil awarded in this category.
Sakellaropoulos organic farms participated with 8 olive oils, and were honored with 8 major distinctions, acquiring very high scores and advancing to the finals of the Olivinus International Competition 2019.
