Pomona, California, February 17, 2020 -
The International Olive Oil Competition season has officially begun! In this year's first major event, The 2020 Los Angeles International Extra Virgin Olive Oil Competition received 600 extra virgin olive oils from 17 different countries.
At Liokareas Olive Oil, we made astonishing leaps in 2019, closing the year as the 5th highest rated olive oil producer in all of Greece, according to the EVOOWR. The motto that we continue to live by for 150 years and five generations is that “we learn something new each year, and we continue to always get better at what we do” .....and the 2020 LAEVOO results we nothing short of this.
Liokareas Olive Oil received not one, not two....but EIGHT awards at the LA Competition!!! The was the most awards of any Greek producer in the competition.
The competition results were issued simultaneously with the 4 new “cold-fused” herb olive oil flavors that Liokareas released earlier this week. Those oils received 4 awards, and a special packaging design award to the new “cold fused” series.
The award winning Olive Oils are as follows:
Bronze Award - Early Harvest Extra Virgin Olive Oil - Our most precious Koroneiki olives picked in the month of October, well balanced, with flavor notes of green grass, banana, green tomato, and that pleasantly peppery finish that we have grown to love.
Bronze Award - Late Harvest Lemon Olive Oil - Our most popular olive oil and the first Liokareas Olive oil to ever win an International award at a major competition, which coincidently was in LA.
Gold Award - Estate Grown Orange Olive Oil - The most Internationally awarded orange olive oil made by any producer in the world in 2019, and #2 in the world in the entire flavor category. This years cold-fused Mani Orange appears to be continuing right where it left off in 2019.
