Another exceptional distinction for Greek olives in the international olive oil competition Anatolian International Olive Oil Competition 2022 held in Turkey.

Sakellaropoulos Organic Farms (www.bioarmonia.gr) noted a record of 100% and 15 awards in equal number of participations in Turkey.

The organic olive products of Sakellaropoulos Organic Farms have acquired 423 international awards, constituting a global record of awards for a Greek Single Estate olive producer. This reflects the dynamic of Greek olive growing, placing Greece and Sparta Laconia in the most prominent places on the global olive growing map, while constituting a great and special honor for Sakellaropoulos Organic Farms.

More specifically, these fifteen (15) awards come from the second edition of the Anatolian IOOC international competition held in Edremit, Balikesir, Turkey, from April 26 to April 29, 2022. This international competition applies strict evaluation standards based on tasting methods defined by the International Olive Oil Council, exclusively with the method of blind tasting and is ranked with a very high score, 8/10, in the world ranking.

The tasting of olive oils at Anatolian IOOC 2022 is carried out by expert olive oil tasters of international prestige, coming from different countries of the world.
