The Competition

ATHENA 2020

ΝΕW DATES
28-29-30 MAY 2020

After consultation with our partners and its international judging committee, Athena IOOC announces that this year’s event is postponed for the 28th, 29th and 30th of May 2020.

The venue, on the island of Lesvos, remains the same: Museum of Industrial Olive Oil Production of Lesvos, Piraeus Bank Group Cultural Foundation.

Given the difficulties some growers are having in forwarding their samples to Greece through courier companies, we are extending the sample reception deadline for another month. Registration however is now closed in compliance with our original deadline.

ATHIOOC

The Philosophy

Greece is the world’s third largest olive oil producer—first in extra virgin olive oil production—and leading by far in terms of per capita consumption, followed by Spain, Italy and Portugal.

Held annually in Greece, the ATHENA International Olive Oil Competition highlights the significance of competing in the age-old homeland of the olive and the birthplace of noble competition and the Olympic ideal.

Today, this historic land, where the myths and legends of the past are constantly interwoven with modern challenges and accomplishments, is the world’s third largest olive oil producer—first in extra virgin olive oil production—and leading by far in terms of per capita consumption, followed by Spain, Italy and Portugal.
