Benefits for the award-winning oils

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.

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 Olive Oil School of Spain shall be used as the basis for scoring criteria.
