US International Olive Oil Competition

We are excited to bring our competition philosophy of trade buyers only judging to the Olive Oil Industry. It is our belief that trade buyers truly know what consumers want and what they will buy at what price. Expert buyers will be blind tasting the vetted samples and will know the category, the place of origin and the retail price.

The Competition is open to all commercially produced olive oil from around the world. Your olive oil does not have to be sold in the United States to be in the competition. We expect around 20% of the entries will come from olive oil producers who want to be blind tasted by top US buyers.

Top winners will be showcased on our media publication Olive Oil Professor and its sister sites the Vinegar Professor, Cheese Professor, The Chocolate Professor and Alcohol Professor. Our Professor Media sites on average have close to 200,000 unique hits a month by consumers and trade.
