AWARD CEREMONY

One of those silver awards went to Oliorama Exclusive Bio, an early-harvested oil from Ancient Olympia. Maria Spiliakopoulou, who produces Oliorama, was overcome with joy upon hearing the news of her win at the press conference. “It’s a very, very highly esteemed competition,” she said. “Whoever wins, wins prestige.” She’s been making olive oil for thirty years. “Every single part of the process has to be perfect.”
