THE MOST PROFESSIONAL COMPETITION IN JAPAN, SINCE 2013
COVID-19 impact on Japan Olive Oil Prize 2020
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Japan Olive Oil Prize Organizing Committee has decided, along with the members of the Panel, to postpone the Japan Olive Oil Prize 2020.
We want to reassure all the producers whose samples have been delivered to us that their bottles have been stocked in a cool and dark room in order to preserve the EVOO in the best condition possible, following the instructions of our panelists.
The producers who have not sent the samples yet please try to do it as soon as you can. We might be able to hold the contest earlier than what we think, therefore we want to be sure to have all the samples in our hands.
In the coming weeks, we will keep working in order to organize the best competition possible.
Thank you for your support and understanding.
P.S. In accordance with the instructions provided by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government on March 30th, our staff is now working from home. All the “Attempted Delivery Notices” are being collected once a week and a second delivery coordinated directly with the shipping companies handling the samples.
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.
