Oro del Desierto has won a staggering number of  awards in recent international competitions and is currently exporting to over 20 different countries.  Below is a small selection of some of the most recent, "prestigious", "important" or just plain satisfying competitions.  This will demonstrate that Oro del Desierto makes unusually fine tasting organic olive oil.  And please don't forget that most of these awards had them up against some of the largest producers in the world while Oro del Desierto can still call itself a "boutique" producer.  Furthermore, in case you were wondering where most of the "rest of the best" olive oils come from, note the dominance of Spain in the listings below.
