Northland olive oil wins top prize

A Northland olive oil has taken the top prize at the LA County Fair in the United States – one of the world’s biggest olive oil competitions.

It is the product of Te Arai Olive Estate, a six year old grove near Mangawhai.

As last season’s oil, it was up against this season’s northern hemisphere produce.

Grower Colin Campbell says some overseas buyers have expressed an interest in Te Arai oil as a result of the win.

But he says his main focus is to continue supporting local buyers, whom he describes as “chefs who care”.
