The international competition for extra virgin olive oils leading to the Mario Solinas Quality Award of the International Olive Council (IOC) is based on Decision No DECIII.5/114-VI /2021, which the Council adopted on 25 November 2021. Pursuant to this decision, the Award was launched in the 2000–2001 crop year in the wake of the Council’s 1993 decision to create it as a memorial and tribute to one of the most important advocates of the sensory analysis of virgin olive oil, the late Italian Professor Mario Solinas.
A call for tenders has been published on the IOC website for the organisation of the prize-giving ceremony for the Mario Solinas Quality Award (CO/2022-23).
The deadline for submissions is 13 June 2022.
