The Puglian company took home a Gold Award for its Pavoni brand, an organic medium, and a Silver Award for its its Pavoni Masseria Fortificata, an organic delicate Leccino.
“Although it is the fifth year in a row that we win a prize, seeing the name of our company among the best oil producing companies is enormously emotional,” CEO Giovanni Simeone said.
In the 2019/20 season, I Pavoni produced 8,000 liters of organic extra virgin olive oil from Coratina and Leccino olives using traditional methods.
Simeone said that the company enjoyed an abundant harvest after a difficult year in 2018.
“After a disastrous 2018, this agricultural year was abundant and of excellent quality,” he said.
