The first ever SA Olive Young Chef Competition is a tasty mix of South Africa’s thriving culinary culture, the incredible talent of our future chefs and the versatility of olive oil and olives. SA Olive sees it as the perfect opportunity to be part of developing young and talented local chefs.
Absa has recognised and awarded top locally produced extra virgin olive oils since 2013. Being an Absa Top 10 winner is a remarkable achievement for winning producers and an award in this competition is confirmation that their oils are of the highest quality.
South African extra virgin olive oils (EVOO) made a clean sweep of all nine the coveted medals in the 5th edition of the Sol d’Oro Southern hemisphere olive oil competition. Sixty-two Southern hemisphere EVOOs entered the competition and were blind tasted by an international panel of olive oil experts from Italy, Spain, Chile, Peru, Greece, and South Africa.
