An exceptional distinction for a Greek olive producer, with the absolute record of 100% and 15 awards in equal number of participations was noted in Turkey for Sakellaropoulos Organic Farms, in the international olive oil competition Anatolian International Olive Oil Competition 2022.
Additionally, these 15 international awards complete a new record number. The organic olive products of Sakellaropoulos Organic Farms have acquired 423 international awards, constituting a global record of awards for a Greek Single Estate olive producer. This reflects the dynamic of Greek olive growing, placing Greece and Sparta Laconia in the most prominent places on the global olive growing map, while constituting a great and special honor for Sakellaropoulos Organic Farms.
More specifically, these fifteen (15) awards come from the second edition of the Anatolian IOOC international competition held in Edremit, Balikesir, Turkey, from 26 to 29 April 2022. This international competition applies strict evaluation standards, based on tasting methods defined by the International Olive Oil Council, exclusively with the method of blind tasting and is ranked with a very high score, 8/10, in the world ranking.
The tasting of olive oils at Anatolian IOOC 2022 is carried out by expert olive oil tasters of international prestige, coming from different countries of the world.
For 2022, hundreds of olive oils from many olive-producing countries participated with a very high level of quality and degree of difficulty in distinguishing them.
Sakellaropoulos Organic Farms were honored with extremely high awards, specifically 4 gold and 11 silver awards, and thus are ranked with a new record among the only producers who have achieved the absolute number of 15 awards in an equal number of participations.
In particular, the international awards for the organic and gourmet olive oils of Sakellaropoulos Organic Farms at the Anatolian IOOC for 2022 are:
Flavored Gourmet Enigma - Gold Award

All these extremely high awards are a special honor for Sakellaropoulos Organic Farms, with the emergence of our newest addition for 2022, Treasure blend evoo, which managed to be honored with a gold award and a score approaching 95% in its first participation at an international competition of high level and prestige in the olive oil world ranking.
A very important element that is extracted from the results of the international competition Anatolian IOOC 2022 is the fact that no other Greek olive producer has succeeded in reaching the absolute 100% of 15 awards in 15 participations at an international competition.
These fifteen (15) major international awards at the Anatolian International Olive Oil Competition 2022 are of particular importance for Sakellaropoulos Organic Farms, as they complete the unique number of 423 international awards worldwide, a record number for a Greek olive producer exclusively with their own products.
