To provide producers with the most time to benefit from their achievement, award-winning results are released throughout the judging period as they are verified (instead of waiting until the last sample is judged before releasing the results in bulk).

Samples are analyzed in the approximate order they were received. It is therefore recommended to ship samples early in the shipping period.

The presentation of the award-winning brands runs from April 4 through May on the Official Guide to the World's Best Olive Oils and in special sections of Olive Oil Times.

Non-awarded brands are not publicly disclosed and their results may not be available in Producer Tools until the conclusion of the presentation period.
