For the sixth year running, Tunisian producer Olivko has been recognized for its organic extra virgin olive oils at the NYIOOC World Olive Oil Competition.
Olivko scooped up five awards at this year’s edition of the industry’s premier quality contest, including three Gold and two Silver Awards.
I want to leave something behind. I want to make some difference.
– Karim Fitouri, Olivko
The company earned the Gold Awards for its robust Chetoui, medium Chemlali and medium Wild Cultivar. Olivko also earned Silver Awards for a delicate and medium Chetoui monovarietals.
Karim Fitouri, the founder and owner of Olivko, told Olive Oil Times that the prominent emergence of Olivko onto the international stage mirrors the rise of the Tunisian olive oil sector as a whole.
