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.

Greece

Why in Greece

Greece, the first country in the world to uplift the olive and olive oil by giving them a central role in its culture and economy

Just as long distance runners aspire to participate in the classic Marathon run or great actors dream of performing at the ancient theater of Epidaurus, dedicated olive oil producers dream of the opportunity to compete in the land where everything started.

Greece, the first country in the world to uplift the olive and olive oil by giving them a central role in its culture and economy, is one of the leading olive oil producers worldwide, while Greek extra virgin olive oils are universally recognized as among the best in the world. Moreover, Greece’s leading olive variety, Koroneiki, is being adopted in a plethora of other countries that are striving for excellence.

The dream of competing and winning in Greece came true in 2016 with the first edition of the ATHENA International Olive Oil Competition, which was held in Athens, olive oil culture’s legendary birthplace.
