It also seeks to enhance consumer awareness regarding this unique product, encouraging them to recognize and appreciate the sensory attributes of these high-quality olive oils.

The awards ceremony will be celebrated in the framework of the upcoming 119th session of the IOC’s Council of Members in June 2024 (date and venue TBD).
