THE MOST PROFESSIONAL COMPETITION IN JAPAN, SINCE 2013
The 9th Award Ceremony of the Japan Olive Oil Prize will take place on May 11th, 2021. The Ceremony will be held ONLINE on ZOOM and Facebook.
We will announce the winners of the quality prizes (PGI, PDO, Organic, Monovarietal, Blend, and Aromatic prizes) and the JOOP Design Award among more than 450 entries.
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.
