Double Gold Medal at the ATHENA International Olive Oil Competition in Greece 2020
The Cooperativa Sant Isidre of Juncosa in Les Garrigues has been awarded the Double Gold Medal at the fifth edition of the ATHENA International Olive Oil Competition, held 11 to 13 June at the Museum of Industrial Production of Olive Oil in Lesbos, for the high quality of its oil Les Cabanes. The ATHENA International Olive Oil Competition awards are designed to shine a spotlight on the symbolic importance of participation and the value of victory in a country which not only represents one of the world’s leading olive oil producers, but which is also the cradle of healthy rivalry and the Olympic ideal, the olive and the olive tree –according to Greek mythology, Athena planted the first olive tree in the Acropolis of Greece–.
With this new acknowledgement, the oil Les Cabanes has already accumulated 12 international awards over the last three years in spots as emblematic as Los Angeles, New York, Japan, Paris, China, London and now, Greece as well. Prizes which demonstrate the high quality of the oil Les Cabanes, a hand-picked, early-harvest oil, and which highlight the great labour of the Co-op’s members and workers.
