Producers of extra virgin olive oil from all over the Southern Hemisphere are being called on to enter the Sol D’Oro International Extra Virgin Olive Oil Competition, to be hosted in Melbourne from 5-9 September 2016.

The southern-region version of the prestigious competition is open to those who produce extra virgin olive oils south of the equator and with two different labels.

The event is organised by Veronafiere, is sponsored and supported by the Government of Victoria, enjoys the patronage of the Italian Consulate and is organised in collaboration with the Italian Chamber of Commerce in Melbourne.

The jury of international panellists under the guidance of Marino Giorgetti will make awards to olive oils selected after a sequence of blind tastings. The competition has three categories: delicate fruity, medium fruity, and intense fruity.

Oils winning awards at Sol d'Oro Southern Hemisphere will be entitled to affix the Sol d'Oro, Sol d'Argento and Sol di Bronzo ‘quality stickers’ to their products.

The winners will be presented, together with the winners of the Sol d'Oro Northern Hemisphere awards in December 2017, to international buyers at the Oil Bar during the next Sol&Agrifood agro-foods event in Verona on 9-12 April 2017 and included in the Sol d'Oro Stellar Guide published every year by Veronafiere and distributed to buyers and journalists from all over the world.

Registration and delivery of samples is from 1-31 August 2016. See More Information link below.
