SA Olive Competition


ANNUAL COMPETITION

The SA Olive Competition is held annually to award the finest of that year's vintage. Entries are judged by an internationally accredited organoleptic tasting panel.

”The South African consumer is increasingly aware of the high quality of locally produced olive oils and keeps a close eye on the results of this competition,” says Andries Rabie, prior SA Olive chairperson.

 

2014 AWARDS

The competition, now in its ninth year, attracted 76 locally-produced extra virgin olive oils. A total of 17 exceptional extra virgin oils received gold medals in three categories – 3 for Delicate, 8 for Medium and 6 for Intense style oils. Read more here.
