This year The Aurora International Taste Challenge will be hosted in South Africa, and some of the top food professionals will be judging products from around the world. The goal is to identify and award the best-tasting products available to consumers.
The aim of the panellists is to assess the quality of products from the consumer’s point of view, in similar circumstances to those in which a consumer would enjoy the product.
Olives will be judged in sub categories according to the following main criteria:
- Curing method
- Flavoured or natural
- Cultivar used
Olive oil will be judged in sub-categories according to these main criteria:
- Extra virgin olive oil (evoo) on intensity and cultivar
- Flavoured or infused olive oil
- Flavour type if flavoured or infused
While many consumers are brand loyal, most would choose an alternative if they had access to fair product ratings. The Aurora International Taste Challenge will grant merit and trophy awards to exceptional products that are readily available worldwide. We are proud to be setting new quality standards in the food and drinks industry.
