Mario Solinas Quality Award of the International Olive Council

Every year the International Olive Council organises the competition for the Mario Solinas Quality Award. After deciding on the creation of the Award in 1993, the Council actually launched it in the 2000/01 season by approving Decision No DEC-1/82-IV/00 on 8 June 2000.

DECISION No DEC-15/S.ex.27-V/2016 - ON THE AWARD OF INSTITUTIONAL IOC PATRONAGE TO NATIONAL EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL QUALITY COMPETITIONS :

ENGLISH FRANÇAIS     عربية

 

 The aim of organising this competition is to encourage individual producers, producer associations and packers in the producing countries to market extra virgin olive oils displaying harmonious organoleptic characteristics and to encourage consumers to recognise and appreciate the sensory attributes of such oils.

 

 

By lending his name to this Award which goes to the top-scoring oils, the IOC wishes to pay tribute to the late Mario Solinas who did so much in the field of research, working closely with the IOC to standardise quality criteria.
