Darmmess, founded by Lebanese Rose Bechara, was awarded the gold medal “Best Olive Oil 2023” at the NYIOOC International Olive Oil Quality Competition, which is considered the largest and most prestigious olive oil quality contest. Darmmess has already been awarded in 2020 the Gold Medal Award at IOOC (International Olive Oil Contest) at Palmi, Italy. Another Lebanese olive oil that won a Gold Award at the 2020 NYIOOC World Olive Oil Competition is Genco for its Orchards of Laila brand.

Rose is originally from the village of Deir Mimas located South of Lebanon, a small village nested between hills covered with ancient olive trees.

Congrats to Rose and the team behind Darmmess for putting Lebanese olive oil in the the authoritative guide to the world’s best olive oils.
