  • OLIVE JAPAN 2015 International Olive Oil Competition Winners

    The competition, organized by The Olive Oil Sommelier Association of Japan (OSAJ) was the starting point of a week of activities dedicated to olive oil, which took place in Tokyo between 14 and 19 April. The event brings together each year Japanese consumers and expert tasters from around the world, with the participation of the main olive oil producers, as well as international and Japanese producers and manufacturers.

    OLIVE JAPAN is an annual comprehensive open-air event that brings olive oil producers and their products together with consumers and the trade. It is held the weekend in April after each year’s OLIVE JAPAN International Extra Virgin Olive Oil Competition, Symposium and Seminar events.

    •The Venue – FutakoTamagawa is up-scale, but enjoys proximity to major parks and the Tama River with its broad, wide-open banks. For a Tokyo suburb the area also has a high percentage of green spaces such as smaller parks and tree-lined avenues. Because it is an aspirational area, it is the perfect place to host an event that brings olives and olive oil to the urban life style of modern Japanese people.
    •In addition to directly interacting with consumers and influencers in the food world, OLIVE JAPAN provides a precious opportunity to communicate the potential of the Japanese market to international businesses, and support promotional activities to help these businesses expand their presence in Japan.
    •The organizer is the Olive Oil Sommelier Association of Japan(OSAJ), Japan’s sole professional organization for training and certifying olive oil experts, which is independent from any commercial body of the olive and olive oil.
