World Edible Oils
AVPA has found a recognized place in the vegetable oil sector as its 15 years old contest has become the reference in the profession.
Over 400 oils representing twenty countries compete. Jean-Emmanuel Jourde, secretary of the association, pays particular attention to this sector. The contest is open to producers (growers and / or bottlers) or their groups (cooperatives, origin denominations).
For olive oil, AVPA offers a richer classification than usual, so as to allow all the traditional tastes encountered in the Mediterranean to express themselves.
The categories for grain, seed and nut oils gathers all virgin oils that can be cold-pressed from any plant to get cooking oil, whether classified or not in the category of oilseeds.
