Why these Awards?

Why should I submit my EVOO?

The best International EVOO Awards recognize the work of the best oils in the world. Our School is located in Spain. Our culture, tradition and experience allow us to recognize the good practices that are made in other parts of the world and that is why it is so important to give value to outstanding Extra Virgin Olive Oils.

Thanks to this Spanish prize, your mill will be able to promote itself better in its own local market and also at international level. Having the hallmark of ESAO’s high quality is synonymous of guarantee and excellence in olive oil production.

Endowment of the prizes.

Within the Olive Oil School of Spain, we carry out a great work on EVOO training. We participate in different forums throughout the year, positioning the School as a reference in the sector. This is why media and experts come to us when they require specific information about the olive oil sector.

We believe that the prize that can most benefit and compensate the great effort of the winners should be oriented to disseminate the quality of their oils and contribute to increase their sales worldwide.

Sensory valuation

The sensory valuation will be developed in two stages: a first selection whose objective is the elimination of eventual defective oils.

The oils that have exceeded the first sensory evaluation will undergo successive evaluations in order to select the five best oils of each modality.

– The selected oils must exceed the physico-chemical valuation.

– The panel leader will issue a report with the scores of the first three positions of the three modalities. In the case of draws, the physicochemical score will be recorded.

– Subsequently, the jury will identify the finalist samples with their corresponding codification and on the basis of the above, will issue a report specifying the results of the evaluation and the positions occupied by the winners.

– The Organoleptic valuation of the Spanish Ministry of Agriculture shall be used as the basis for scoring criteria.
