About World's Best Olive Oils (WBOO)

World's Best Olive Oils (WBOO) is a non-profit non-government organization.

Constituted and supported by leading international professional olive oil tasters and experts, WBOO's objective is to build the ranking of the world's best extra virgin olive oils from the results of the strictest international extra virgin olive oil competitions and thus appreciate the value of extraordinary extra virgin olive oils.

In the current material world - which has become of world of commodities - dominated by productivity and financial requirements, products of premium quality deserve a different recognition and their producers deserve to be supported in and awarded for their efforts.

WBOO tries to execute the most objective and reliable compilation of the results of the strictest international competitions, which follow internationally recognized methods and standards in evaluating the organoleptic properties of the examined extra virgin olive oils.

Nevertheless we would like to state clearly, that our rankings can only reflect the rules and results published or made available to us by the individual competition organizers / committees and obviously also can only reflect the extra virgin olive oils and olive oil mills that have participated in those competitions.

Certainly there a lot more excellent extra virgin olive oils out there in the world and the owners of the corresponding oil mills have the freedom of choice to participate or not in these international quality competitions for extra virgin oilve oils that we do consider.

We also understand that participating in all or many of these competitions does imply quite a high cost and that especially smaller olive oil mills cannot permit themselves to participate in a large number of competitions. To consider this fact we are studying options to also take this into account for future editions of our ranking.

Thanks for your attention.
