IOOA / OLIO 2013
All registered oils took part in the objective sensory evaluation (IOOA) in March 2013 and have still, if they reached the final round of the IOOA, the additional chance to be awarded in a consumer test (OLIO) in October 2013. Both events are organized and accomplished by the University of Applied Sciences Zurich (ZHAW) in Waedenswil. The media- and communication-partner are the editors of "Salz & Pfeffer" (Swiss journal for catering and gastronomy).
The objective selection of sensorically excellent “extra virgin” olive oils was done in the context of the „12th International Olive Oil Award – Zurich 2013". The tastings took place in March 2013 by the Swiss Olive Oil Panel (SOP) of the ZHAW, that is accredited since October 2006 according to ISO 17025 (STS 240; www.ilgi.zhaw.ch/sensorik). The members of the SOP are constantly trained in accordance to the regulations of the International Olive Oil Council (IOC). Therefore the neutral and objective evaluation of the participating olive oils was ensured.
For participants it was possible to get their Olive Oils chemically analyzed (4 parameters) for a special package-price.
Sensorically outstanding olive oils were honoured during an award ceremony on Thursday, April 18, 2013. Results of the IOOA were published and winners were honoured with Golden Olives, Silver Olives, Awards as well as our Country-prices. Additional special prices were awarded in the category "Best Mono-Variety" and "Best Organic Olive Oil".
The most accepted and prefered olive oils are getting honoured with the "Olio 2013“ on the occasion of the Gourmesse 2013 (October 04 - 07, 2013) at the Kongresshaus Zurich. Results for this event are collected during a consumer test.
