THE MOST PROFESSIONAL EVOO COMPETITION IN JAPAN IS NOW BACK FOR ITS 10th ANNIVERSARY!
The current international logistic crisis, caused by the crisis in Ukraine on top of the existing disruptions to do the pandemic, has severely affected the shipping of olive oils to Japan, with delays of over two weeks in many cases. In order to allow for the late participants to be evaluated, we took the decision to postpone the date of the JOOP Award Ceremony to May 13th at 18:00 (GMT+9).
The ceremony will be streamed on ZOOM and FACEBOOK
If you have just registered and are worried about your package, please inquire with us. We have allowed enough time for all packages to arrive safely.
Our judges and the JOOP team will be waiting for you!
The Japan Olive Oil Prize is an international contest that aims at promoting extra-virgin olive oils of all origin in Japan. It represents a unique opportunity for producers to increase their brand awareness in international markets. In particular, Japan is the Asian country where the demand for high-quality extra-virgin olive oil grows the most.
When it comes to olive oil, we only aim for the best. JOOP is synonymous with excellence and fairness, granted by an internationally recognized panel of jurors. Participating oils are selected based on blind tasting procedures and in full accordance with the EU regulations.
