Helea wins silver in 2014 New York International Olive Oil Competition

Helea Premium Greek extra virgin olive oil was recognized as one of the best olive oils in the world at a press conference in front of a packed house at the International Culinary Center Theater in New York City.

An esteemed international panel of expert olive oil tasters evaluated a collection of 651 oils from 25 countries among 24 categories and awarded Helea’s flagship product with a silver award for its exceptional quality.

The judges tasting notes speak for themselves:

“Aromas of ripe fruit, green grass, tomato and notes of grass, herbs. Taste exhibits medium fruitiness, green leaves, sweetness, bitterness, medium pungency and notes of green pepper, with exceptional harmony, a high complexity and a high persistence.”

The entire Helea team would like to congratulate our exceptional network of olive oil experts led by Mr. Nikos Koutsoukos (Chemist, MSc), for assisting us to deliver on our promise to source the best of its year’s production for our customers.
