OLIVE PRODUCERS

NORTH EAST VICTORIA

OLIVE PRODUCERS

Victoria produces more than half of Australia’s olive oil and in 1999 our association introduced the Australian Golden Olive Awards which allowed our members and growers from all over Australia the ability to benchmark their products and to receive valuable scientific information about their yields.

Now in its 19th year, this competition is recognised as a flagship in the industry.


OUR AWARDS

The Australian Golden Olive Awards is a low cost competition which provides Free Fatty Acid and Peroxide testing on your oil and microbiological tests on your table olives from fully accredited laboratories, with results provided to you.

The tests allow you to seek accreditation from the Australian Olive Association (AOA) for their Australian Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) logo and enable you to submit your product in other competitions.

WHAT WE DO

Olive Producers North East Victoria is a regional association, however we are keen to promote olive products Australia-wide for the mutual benefit of all industry stakeholders, whether these are large companies or a smaller family business.

We believe it is important to encourage the continuing development of olive products across our continent and to provide a vehicle whereby the best in our industry are given due acknowledgement and public profile.


ABOUT US

Our association, first formed in the late 1990’s , was initially established as a cooperative group of growers, processors and people with an interest in olives. You only need one tree to be a member.

In the early days, we had an extensive educational program on the agricultural aspects of our industry (soil types, pruning techniques, varieties best suited to our region, dealing with pests, fertilizing) and processing aspects (harvesting techniques, pickling and preserving) which included workshops and grove visits as we shared our knowledge.

MEMBERSHIPS

Our membership has evolved over the years and we are keen for those new to the industry to become involved and participate in planning and organising workshops to suit their needs.
