A great and double golden success at an international level was achieved by Sakellaropoulos Organic Farms, in Italy, and in the global competition of certified organic olive oils, BIOLNOVELLO International Olive Oil Competition 2022 - 2023.
The BIOLNOVELLO international competition evaluates exclusively the organic olive oils of early harvest for every new harvest season, our well-known unripe extra virgin oils, which have been proven to be produced no later than November 15, 2022.
It is part of the famous international organic olive oil competition, BIOL International Olive Oil Competition, which gathers great interest from the global organic olive industry.
The fresh organic unripe olive oils that participate every year in BIOLNOVELLO must be certified according to the standards of IFOAM (International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements) and are initially tested with chemical analyzes in specialized laboratories, where they must meet specific eligibility criteria in order to participate in BIOLNOVELLO.
Then, a panel of numerous expert olive oil tasters – judges, recognized by the Italian Ministry of Agriculture, proceeds to make organoleptic analysis on all participating organic olive oils based on the criteria established by the International Olive Council.
The international competition BIOLNOVELLO 2022 – 2023, took place in Bari, Italy, from December 7 to 10, 2022, while the participating olive oils were hundreds, coming from many countries of the world, mainly from Italy, Greece, Spain, Portugal, Turkey, Croatia, Argentina, Tunisia, Slovenia etc.
