SA Olive Awards 2013 Results

SA Olive Awards Logo 2013

Now in its eight year, the SA Olive Awards has grown significantly. This year saw 100 olive oils entered, of which 43 were exceptional enough to be rated gold. 39 entries qualified for a silver award and 14 were awarded bronze.

In a surprise but well received move, the Lifetime Achievement award this year was awarded to the entire tasting panel for their tireless commitment, at no personal gain, to the industry. The tasting panel consists of Gerrie Duvenage, Leonard Arangies, Robert Claassens, Annemarie Ferreira, Louise Rabie, Benedetta Lami Zichella, Reni Hildenbrand, Kelly White and Annalene du Toit.
