In an interview with Michael McLaren of 2GB 873AM, the President of the Australian Olive Oil Association, David Valmorbida, talks about olive oil in Australia, the growth of Australian-produced olive oil and the increasing sophistication of consumer choice. Valmorbida notes the ongoing demand for a variety of olive oils from around the world, as well as the need for imported olive oil in Australia to supplement the growing local production. According to the current harvest conditions, a major opportunity for the growth of Australian olive oil currently exists under conditions where it has on average become cheaper than imported olive oil in Australia, while continuing to have strong quality on offer.
