Rose Bechara receives “2020 Gold Medal” at IOOC 


Lebanese Rose Bechara received the “2020 Gold Medal” at the International Olive Oil Contest (IOOC) at Palmi, Italy. In an interview with An Nahar daily, Bechara, founder of the Darmmess Extra Virgin Olive Oil brand in October 2019, boasted that she is a native of Deir Mimas (Marjeyoun, South Lebanon), a beautiful small village nested between hills covered with ancient olive trees (600 to 2000 years). Bechara recounted that since her childhood, olive oil has been highly appreciated in her village and in demand in Lebanon. She researched and learned more about olive oil and its multiple health benefits. Eventually, “I decided to promote this green gold which I started dreaming of since 2017,” Bechara said. “I was delighted by the idea of promoting it locally and internationally to people who appreciate it. I started my journey with the one-of-a-kind extra virgin olive oil developed exclusively for true connoisseurs,” she concluded. (An Nahar, June 17, 2020)
