Which is the best 2008 organic olive oil in the world, where does it come from, who produced the best blended and which extra virgin olive oil presented the best label and packaging?
The most important rewards in the world for organic olive growing - Biol Prize, Biolblended and BiolPack - will will be handed out in Modena on June 19 on occasion of the IFOAM international Congress during the Gala Dinner. During the evening, the winners of other territorial and thematic mentions will be awarded such as the prizes connected to BiolPhoto competition, BiolKids and BiolEthic.
Biol is one of the most important olive growing events in the world today, not only in the organic field. After the territorial pre-selections in Italy and abroad, the international jury tasted 310 finalist olive oils, which is a new record. The oils came from 19 countries: Albania, Arabia, Argentina, Australia, Chile, Croatia, Jordan, Greece, Israel, Italy, Lebanon, New Zeeland, Palestine, Peru, Portugal, Spain, Tunisia, Turkey and the USA.
The competition final works took place at the end of April in Monopoli, in the south of Bari, during the XIII edition of Biol – organized by CiBi and sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce of Bari, the regional agriculture local authority, and the Ministry of Agricultural Policy.
This year, the event was connected to BiolFish, an Interreg project on organic aquaculture and sustainable fishery. This was a week of events with a lot of conventions, gastronomic and cultural events on olive oil and organic fishing.
