Lefkada won a great distinction. Lambros Margelis family won a silver medal in the Olive Oil competition “Athena International Olive Oil Competition” (ATHIOOC) “2020”, with their Olive Garden oil from whitewash of Agios Petros Lefkada. It is the second success after 2018. The annual Athena International Olive Oil Competition highlights the symbolic significance of participation and the value of victory here in Greece, the country that is not only the birthplace of the olive tree, but is also the homeland of noble rivalry and the Olympic ideal.
The competition was held from April 2 to 4 in Lesvos. The international jury consists of 20 international olive oil tasters, from Argentina, Brazil, France, USA, Spain, Israel, Italy, Croatia, Great Britain, Portugal, Tunisia and, of course, Greece. The competition is now one of the most important in the world. This distinction is one of the most important that our island is credited with and is the result of great love for the land, hard work and appetite for the work of two tireless people.
Well done Labros!!!
