2008 Olive Industry Directory out now!

More than 250 new listings and 1300 updated listings are included in the newly released 2008 Australian and New Zealand Olive Industry Directory, published by Ryan Publications.

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.

Of the total listings, 821 are classified as olivegrowers and oliveprocessors

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 team behind the Olive Industry Directory was 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”, said Ryan Publications’ listings manager, Raquel Williams.

The Directory delivers key industry statistical information on a state and national basis and includes 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. Listing information includes details of growers, producer brands, commercial products, hectares planted and tonnes pressed or pickled.
