The Australian Golden Olive Awards gives our members and growers
across Australia a benchmarking tool and valuable scientific feedback.
The Australian Golden Olive Awards is an economical competition which provides Free Fatty Acid and Peroxide testing on your olive oils 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.
Olive Producers North East Victoria
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.
