ATHENS — An exceptional distinction for a Greek olive producer, with Best in Class and 12 major awards presented to Sakellaropoulos Organic Farms (www.bioarmonia.gr) in Turkey, was earned at the Anatolian International Olive Oil Competition 2021.

At the same time, these 12 awards complete a new record number. The 301 international awards that the organic olive oil products of Sakellaropoulos Organic Farms have collected constitute a world record of awards for a Greek Single Estate olive producer. This event reflects the dynamic of Greek olive cultivation, placing Greece and Sparta Laconia, in the most prominent places on the global olive cultivation map, while being a great and special honour for Sakellaropoulos Organic Farms.

More specifically, these twelve awards come from the first edition of the Anatolian IOOC international competition that was held in Edremit Balikesir, Turkey, from May 31 to June 2, 2021.
