NZEVOO Awards – Record Entry

September 8, 2014

Entries closed on Friday for New Zealand’s premier Extra Virgin Olive Oil Awards with a record entry of 92. The 2014 New Zealand Extra Virgin Olive Oil Awards have attracted entries from all of the major olive growing regions across the country. Using a fully trained panel of Judges led by a renowned international specialist, and requiring all entries to have been certified as extra virgin olive oil (via the Olives NZ Certification Program), the Awards recognise excellence in New Zealand extra virgin olive oils.

“This season has seen a bumper harvest with many sensational oils produced. Competition is going to be fierce for the top awards with a record entry received” says Gayle Sheridan, Executive Officer for Olives New Zealand. “New Zealand olive growers highly value the opportunity of having their Extra Virgin Olive Oils assessed by international experts.”

The 2014 NZ EVOO Awards Dinner will be held at Parliament Buildings, Wellington on Saturday 4th October. This will be a gala affair fitting to the occasion. Members and their guests are most welcome to attend.
