Mer des Oliviers de Delphes notched its third win at the world’s most prestigious olive oil quality contest.
“The November 2019 harvest was great here in Delphi. The weather helped to make a good olive harvest and direct oiling at 25 degrees Celsius. We are happy with the very good result of our effort,” company co-owner Vasilis Kanatas said after learning of the award.
The winning oil was Mer des Oliviers de Delphes, a medium Amfissis, which took a Silver Award in the world’s most prestigious olive oil contest. The company produces its extra virgin olive oil in Amfissis using traditional methods.
“Winning another award in the New York competition is for us a very big step for the global recognition of Delphi olive oil. We want to send the message that Europe’s oldest olive grove in Delphi can produce high-value olive oil. The New York competition is for us the highest step in recognizing our olive oil. Thank you!” Kanatas said.
The NYIOOC World Olive Oil Competition, held each spring in New York, is the world’s largest and most prestigious olive oil contest and its annual listing of award winners is considered the authoritative guide to the year’s best extra virgin olive oils.
