They have also valued their contribution to raise the quality of the media sector and the adaptation of the publishing companies to the digital changes present in an immediate future.
The EVOOLEUM Guide of the 100 Best EVOOs in the world recognized at the EVOOLEUM Awards, the International Awards for the Quality of Extra Virgin Olive Oil organized by Mercacei and the Spanish Association of Municipalities of the Olive Tree (AEMO), was described in the award ceremony by Carlos Astiz as an "authentic printed jewel." Juan A. Peñamil, publisher of the Guide, was in charge of picking up this prize which was given last year to the well-known magazine Tapas, of Spain Media, responsible for other prestigious publications such as Esquire, Forbes, L'Officiel and Robb Report.
The EVOOLEUM Guide -which has a printed version published in Spanish and English and also an app- is distributed in the main international fairs and competitions of the olive and gastronomic sector, as well as in gourmet and delicatessen establishments, bookstores, supermarkets and specialized book stores spread across the five continents.
