  • France Olive Oil Awards Les Olivalies 2016 in Cannes

    For the 4rd consecutive year, the Union des Œnologues de France, (Union of French Oenologists) organizes an international competition featuring different olive oils: Les Olivalies®

    Relying on the experience of the Technical Centre for Olivier (AFIDOL), the UŒF will highlight the complementarity between cultivating vines and winemaking and cultivating olive trees and the associated products

    A jury of five jurors (including 3 foreigners and 2 French) distinguishes two days outstanding olive oils after an olfactory, taste and retronasal analysis.

    After this competition, stickers (Olivalies Gold and Silver Olivalies) will be awarded to the winners. These awards are a true means of communication and an add-value to marketing your olive oils.
