The SA Olive Awards continues being one of the premier events on the South African olive industry’s calendar. It signifies and acknowledges the culmination of hard work and the strive for excellence within the industry. A panel of international and local taste experts, led by an international panel leader, congregates on South African soil to judge and give CTC certified oils the gold, silver or bronze stamp of taste excellence. Consumer confidence is the key to building a strong industry both locally and globally. The SA Olive Awards focuses on maintaining the quality promise to consumers.

The SA Olive Awards were created to honour the olive oil industry in South Africa. The competition will only accept registrations from entrants with extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) produced in the current season exclusively. Entries must be 100% South African and made by South African producers registered with SA Olive. The entries can be either individual producers or by retailers selling EVOO from South African producers as their house brands.

ABSA Top 10 Olive Oil Competition

ABSA logo

Take Note:

  1. The closing date is 31 July 2019 and NO LATE (or incomplete) entries will be allowed.
  2. Entries for Absa Top 10 also need to be submitted by 31 July. Each farm is only allowed one entry and therefore R300 will apply as entry fee. Members don’t need to indicate which oil they want to enter for Absa as only SA Olive gold medal oils qualify for the Absa judging. In the instance where a farm obtains more than one gold medal, the competition organiser will ensure that the oil with the highest score is entered and judged.
  3. The awards function will take place on 22 Aug 2019 at Ex Nihilo, close to Paarl. Registrations will be asked for at a later stage.
  4. Please deliver the oil samples to D’Olyfboom Family Estate (not the SA Olive office) on 5 or 6 Aug 2019.
