Premium Extra Virgin Australian Certified Organic Olive Oil
Certified organic and certified Australia extra virgin
We are proud to produce some of the highest quality organic extra virgin olive oil in Australia. The company that produces the olive oil we use has the entire grove NASAA Certified Organic, (certification number 3532P) as are the pressing and bottling procedures – so the entire production process is certified to be free of contaminants. This olive oil meets and exceeds both Australian and international standards and we are proud to be signatories to the Australian Olive Industry Code of Practice.
This organic olive oil is routinely tested by an independent laboratory to ensure it meets the IOOC chemical and organoleptic standards for Extra Virgin Olive Oil. This has always been done even before it was required, to measure the quality of the oil and quantify improvements in our harvesting, processing and bottling practices from year to year.
Extra virgin olive oil
Extra virgin olive oil is essentially a fruit juice! It is obtained when oil is extracted solely by mechanical means (no excessive heat or solvents) from fresh, good quality olive fruit. Extra vrirgin olive oil is free of any taste defects and has a free fatty acidity level less than 0.8%. The olive oil is cold pressed on site immediately once picked, achieving an acidity level typically around 0.1% to 0.2% – placing our oil in the ultra-premium end of extra virgin!
