As Australia and New Zealand’s olive industry continues to grow, so too does the number of new growers and processors listed in the 2008 Olive Industry Directory.

821 olivegrowers and oliveprocessors include their details in the 2008 Olive Industry Directory, published by Ryan Publications.

Victoria (186), closely followed by New South Wales (183) has the largest number of growers and processors, according to the Directory and the variety most commonly grown in Australia and New Zealand is Frantoio (623).

The Directory’s cover features buds and flowers of the Frantoio olive variety. The photo was the winner of the 2008 Australian and New Zealand Olive Industry Directory competition, awarded to Andrew Lockyer and Jane Cotton. The judging panel felt that the new growth captured in the photo signified an optimistic outlook for the future of the olive industry.

Ryan Publications’ listings manager, Raquel Williams said the team behind the Olive Industry Directory were thrilled to be able to provide the industry with a comprehensive 2008 edition, which goes from strength to strength each year since its launch in 2006.

The Directory delivers key industry statistical information on a state and national basis. Listings that provide details of growers, producer brands, commercial products, hectares planted and tonnes pressed or pickled. Plus, a calendar of olive shows and field days, contact details for regional olivegrowing associations and research institutes – and a one-stop-shop Buyers’ Guide to assist the user in finding olive industry suppliers.
