Styrian Pumpkin Seed Oil Award of Excellence

The Award of Excellence Seal for the most outstanding pumpkin seed oils in Styria was started in 2003. Each year the producers of pumpkin seed oil get together to determine the best oils produced. There is tough competition and only the best oil producers are awarded this seal every year. This yearly event lasts 3 days of documented, blind taste testing of the oil performed by trained judges. Carefully smelling, tasting, comparing colour, thickness, viscosity and tasting again and finally evaluating to make sure that only the best Styrian Pumpkin Seed oils are given the award. You can see how they actually do it in this stunning documentary CLICK HERE about the Styrian Oil pumpkin.

Styrian Gold Inc. is proud and honored to announce that our oil partner in Styria received the prestigious Chefs award “Gault&Millau” for 5 years in a row! 

With the experience of more than 90 years in the industry, passed down through 3 generations, our oil pressing partner in the heart of Styria has been recognized for their traditional methods, excellent quality, long-term relationship with farmers and dedication to serving their customers better and better, year after year. They have truly been at the forefront of the Styrian pumpkin seed oil phenomenon and are totally deserving of this esteemed Award of Excellence!

In addition to the Seal of Excellence, there is another way for pumpkin seed oil-lovers to identify the unique quality and recognized standard of Styrian Pumpkin Seed Oil. This is the P.G.I. (Protected Geographical Indication) label.

The pumpkin seed oil that Styrian Gold imports to Canada has both the Award of Excellence Seal and the Origin Protection (Protected Geographical Indicator or P.G.I.) label.
