Every spring, the heart of international gastronomy and very high quality food beats in Paris, in the city of high gastronomy and in the famous but also very demanding gastronomic competition, "AVPA GOURMET", which evaluates and awards the highest quality products of the world, including olive oils.

The internationally renowned olive oil tasting competition "AVPA GOURMET World Edible Oils 2023" took place with a double evaluation stage from February to April 2023 in Paris, and the judges are mainly French-speaking professionals, chefs, sommeliers and gourmet tasters. Since 2003, the jury has been chaired by oleologist Christian Pinatel of the Center Technique de l'Olivier in France.

The judges evaluate, according to specific protocols, all olive oil samples with very strict criteria, which are part of the philosophy of the well-known French cuisine, which has been a point of inspiration and reference, influencing, as is well known, all cuisines worldwide.
