News

Australians love their olive oil — we went through 40,000 tonnes of the green, yellowy liquid last year.

It is a staple in kitchens around the country, but do we really know what quality olive oil tastes like?

Victorian olive grower Peter Eicher thinks Australians need to be re-educated about how fresh olive oil should excite our taste buds.

Mr Eicher, who came to Australia from Switzerland and now grows olives in northern Victoria, said much of the imported extra virgin oil Australians love was produced by European growers opting for quantity over quality in order to get maximum return for less effort.
