Rylstone olive producer nabs contracts on ‘best trade trip’

A Rylstone olive producer says he is on his best trade trip to the United States and has gained contracts from his stand at a San Diego speciality food fair.

Nicholas Bentivoglio is in the US showcasing his Rylstone organic olive oil to more than 16,000 buyers as one of 40 Australian producers at the Fancy Food Show.

He has credited Austrade with helping him set up relationships with US distributors, which he says is half the battle.

Mr Bentivoglio says he is happy to be a resource for other central west producers looking to enter the American market.

“I’d be more than happy to hand on advice to anyone in Australia, I think it’s a great opportunity for Australians to get over here,” he said.

“It’s expensive but it’s worth the effort and the money.”
