Quality

Quality is the main attribute and value of olive oils produced in Goya Spain. This quality is perfectly backed up by international certifications and quality seals. 

Quality seals

ChefsBest
American seal that identifies and pays tribute to the best-tasting food products to support the companies that manufacture them. Outside of this concept, ChefsBest is an organization that also provides assistance to consumers, who they see as professional chefs, teaching them to discover the flavor that food should have. The GOYA® family of products has obtained this seal continuously since 2007, and from 2014 to the present with the “Excellence” category.
NAOOA
Quality seals for olive oils granted by the North American Olive Oil Association. This seal of quality is the only olive oil certification that collects samples from off-the-shelf and tests them to see the full range of purity parameters in the global commercial standards established by the International Olive Council (IOC), an Authoritative organization recognized for over 50 years as the worldwide standard quality setting body for the olive oil industry.
Monde Selection
It is an annual non-competitive award open to food, drinks, and cosmetics products, created in 1961. It is led by the commercial company International Institute for Quality Selections, Brussels, Belgium. Consumer products are tasted and tested in order to grant them a quality label awarded by the "International Quality Institute."
iTQi
The International Taste and Quality Institute (iTQi), based in Brussels, is the leading organization dedicated to tasting and promoting superior tasting food products. Since 2012 GOYA® products have been awarded the “Superior Taste Award” seal of quality.
Laur konsumenta
The “Consumer´s Laurel” seal is a unique award, as it is awarded to the most prestigious brands and products, but above all, it is an expression of recognition and popularity among Polish consumers. For customers, it is an excellent determinant for decision-related purchases. This seal of quality selects the product in which customers place their trust. GOYA® products have obtained this seal annually since 2011.
