What do we want to achieve ?

The International Olive Oil Award - Zurich and the OLIO have the goal to strengthen the confidence of the consumers into the product “Virgin Olive Oil” and to promote transparency on the olive oil market.

The events offer at the same time a representative overview of the quality of the current olive oil on the Swiss and on the market of European Union.

  • On the occasion of the “International Olive Oil Award – Zurich” the participating olive oils will be tasted and evaluated by a trained panel of experts. The results serve producers, importers and retailers as scientific basis for the central to long-term quality improvement of “Virgin Olive Oil”
  • In a preference-test at the occasion of the Gourmesse Zürich, the same oils will be tasted and ranked after popularity by consumers and will be awarded with the “OLIO”.
