Oils of the world

AVPA Contest

Contest Edible Oils

For 20 years, AVPA has been conducting a competition that has become a reference in the profession. More than 400 oils representing about twenty countries participate each year.


The competition is intended for producers of vegetable oils (growers or mills) or their groups (cooperatives, Denominations of Origin) who register with the AVPA association.


The " World Edible Oils" contest is organized in two distinct parts:

  • olive oils of which AVPA offers a richer classification than the usual classifications in order to allow the expression of all the traditional tastes encountered around the Mediterranean and in the world.

  • seeds and nuts oils grouping together all virgin oils that can be made with any plant likely to be cold pressed to obtain edible oil, whether or not it is classified as oilseeds. In this section are also judged olive flavored oils or others.


Since 2003 the jury has been chaired by Christian Pinatel of the Centre Technique de l'Olivier.
