The Index is the official yearly results of the

NYIOOC World Olive Oil Competition

The NYIOOC, held each April in New York City, is the world's largest and most prestigious olive oil contest and its annual listing of award winners is widely considered to be the authoritative guide to the year’s best extra virgin olive oils.

The 2018 competition saw 1,000 entries from 28 countries participating -- the largest variety of extra virgin olive oils ever assembled in one place.

The annual event is organized by Olive Oil Times, the independent publication of record for the sector and the most-read source for olive oil news and information.
