In this third edition of the Cretan Olive Oil Competition, 81 samples of bottled and branded Cretan extra virgin olive oil were submitted—more than ever before--35.8% organic, 64.2% conventional. Several identical scores led to double or triple gold and bronze awards. Since so many high scores were very close, honorable mentions were also awarded.
