Over the past three and a half years, the olive levy project Australian olive industry communications and extension program (OL18000) has provided an ongoing stream of information and learning opportunities across a wide range of timely and relevant industry topics.

It’s had great practical results across the industry, so it’s great news that it’s all set to continue – and grow – thanks to a new five-year extension of the project which commenced in October.

Once again being run by the industry’s representative body, the Australian Olive Association (AOA), the project will “provide and promote the skills and capability the Australian industry needs to be internationally competitive, with products which have a marketable point of difference that can deliver price premiums”.

What information do YOU want?

Two of the “sell-out” elements of the industry communications and extension project are the national field day programs and the annual production workshops. Both are locked into the continuing five-year program and the organisers are keen to know what topics you, our growers and producers, would like to have covered.

  • Field days: what would you like the focus to be? Where should they be held in your state?
  • Workshops: currently cover processing of EVOO and table olives. Are you interested in learning about producing flavoured olive oil?

Suggestions for webinar topics, fact sheets and other project outputs are also most welcome.
