In the last few years, the number of countries successfully entering in the high quality EVOO market is increasing more and more, year after year. The latest figures bring the total number of countries where the olive tree is now familiar to 65.
It comes as no surprise that countries such as China, India, South (and North) America have turned into EVO Oil producing countries. On the other hand, it will surprise to hear that for more ‘’unconventional’’ countries such as Brazil, Canada, Georgia, Azerbaijan and Japan the production of EVO Oil is a stable reality since years.
With the worldwide expansion of the cultivated areas for oil production, the number of national and international contest awarding the excellences of EVO oil production has expanded as well. These contests are born with the main goal of award and promote the oil excellences from all over the world.
For a more detailed overview on the ongoing contests, it is sufficient to browse WREVOO
website to get an insight of the number, the importance and the origin of these contests. Since 2016, Evo IOOC Italy , international EVO Oil and Flavored EVOO contest organized in Italy by its founder and president Dr. Antonio G. Lauro.
We asked Dr. Lauro 10 main benefits of participating to the EVO IOOC Italy Contest, described as ‘’The International Academy Award of EVOOs and Flavored EVOO’’
‘’Actually, I can find more than ten reasons that could convince an EVOO producer to join an Olive Oil contest and EVO IOOC Italy in particular’’, starts Dr. Lauro.
