Olive growers and distributors meeting in Canberra over the last two days believe that there is plenty of room for growth in the local industry.
The Australian Olive Expo has heard it should be viable to produce a local extra virgin brand in and around the ACT.
Australian Olive Association president Paul Miller says the area produces a superior product.
“Canberra is a relatively cool climate, and that confers additional flavour and colour to the olive oil,” he said.
“That in turn means that oil is actually of better quality.”
