Application Form

Salón Gourmets has been a driving force and an exceptional witness to the impressive boom that Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) is experiencing around the world, supporting producers in their race towards excellence in a sector that is constantly innovating and professionalising.

There is therefore a clear need to publicise the great Extra Virgin Olive Oils that are currently being produced in different corners of the world, the immense variety of colours, flavours and textures they offer and the infinite versatility of this product.

The best extra virgin olive oils in the world will be present at Salón Gourmets for the second consecutive year in the 2nd Salón Gourmets World EVOO Competition. The aim of the competition is to find the most outstanding oils of the 2022/2023 campaign.

The Official Tasting Panel of the Community of Madrid will then select the EVOOs that took part in the Final, where a jury, made up of international professionals from the sector, will award 7 prizes taking into account their typology, organoleptic characteristics and design.
