Hellenic Fields Awarded for Early Harvest Koroneiki

6 months agoBy Daniel Dawson

Greek producer Hellenic Fields has won a Gold Award at the 2020 NYIOOC World Olive Oil Competition for its Ena Ena Early Harvest, a medium Koroneiki.

We are excited to add this very important recognition to our awards portfolio and be among the best olive oils of the world.

Nikolas Philippidis, co-owner

In the 2019/20 season, the Olympia-based company produced 30 liters of this particular extra virgin olive oil using traditional methods.

“This is our first medal in the NYIOOC,” co-owner Nikolas Philippidis said. “We are excited to add this very important recognition to our awards portfolio and be among the best olive oils of the world.”

He added that overall 2019 was a very good year. However, he did have to contend with extraordinarily high temperatures during the harvest period.

“Our harvest was characterized by excellent quality of fruit, but high atmospheric temperatures,” Philippidis said. “It was a challenge to reach daily harvest quotas under 100 degrees Fahrenheit and maintain production protocols related to milling temperatures, but we managed and produced superior quality extra virgin olive oils.”

The NYIOOC World Olive Oil Competition, held each spring in New York, is the world’s largest and most prestigious olive oil contest and its annual listing of award winners is considered the authoritative guide to the year’s best extra virgin olive oils.
