The Australian Olive Association launched the ‘Australian Extra Virgin’ brand to raise awareness and educate consumers about the health benefits, freshness and quality of Australian extra virgin olive oil.
Australian olive oil producers know that if they use undamaged olives, process them quickly after picking, employ the services of a spotlessly clean mill and don’t strive for excessive extraction, then sound quality olive oil will result.
The Australian Olive Association was founded in 1995 as the industry body to encourage research and dissemination of information and the sustained development of a national olive industry in Australia.
The Association has launched the Australian Extra Virgin brand to raise awareness and educate consumers about the health benefits, freshness and quality of Australian extra virgin olive oil.
The Association has recently introduced a Code of Practice which will guarantee the authenticity and quality of certified products and distinguish them from imported products. To be certified, products must be Australian and have undergone organoleptic (taste) and chemical testings.
