Give your consumers confidence in the quality of your Extra Virgin Olive Oil!
How does a consumer know an Authentic Australian Extra Virgin Olive Oil from any other?
What is code of practice certification?
The Australian Olive Industry Code of Practice was developed to define the high quality of all Australian olive products and associated production processes. The Code stands behind industry efforts to educate consumers and to promote the quality of Australian olive products such as the Australian Extra Virgin campaign for Australian extra virgin olive oil.
This is a voluntary Code, designed to support quality, authenticity and confidence in the Australian olive industry and its products. It supplements the provisions of the Australian Standards for Olive Oil and Pomace Oil (AS 5264-2011), Food Standards Australia New Zealand Code and related legislation, the Trade Practices Act, State and Territory fair trading food safety and health legislation, and international rules and codes with similar aims, such as those of the International Olive Council, American Oil Chemists Society, International Standards Organisation and the Codex Alimentarius Commission.
Why have your brands certified?
The Code gives assurance to customers and provides certification and monitoring processes for producers of olive oil and in the future for producers of table olives, other food products marketed as olive products and other products where an olive product is the characterising or predominant ingredient. The Code establishes the means for continuing consumer sensitive management, certification and monitoring processes. It also commits the industry to ecologically sustainable production methods.
All certified products under Australian Olive Association will carry either of these symbols
