The Voluntary Industry Standard for Table Olives in Australia was prepared by the National Table Olive Committee of the Australian Olive Association Ltd (AOA), and published by RIRDC in October 2012. This is a voluntary industry standard that establishes an objective basis for the wholesale and retail trade of table olive products in Australia. The Standard is incorporated into the AOA’s Code of Practice for olive oil, table olives and other olive products (Second Edition - Revised October 2013), which aims to guarantee the authenticity of Australian table olives and distinguish these from other products by providing consumers with a recognisable quality seal – Certified Australian Table Olives™ which is a certified trademark.
Thank you to those table olive producers who provided input to the development of this Standard.
