Australia has the ideal conditions for growing and processing table olives. In a climate where the majority of table olives eaten by Australians are imported, real opportunities exist for a domestic table olive industry. Attention to quality and safety will ensure that Australian table olive producers are in a position to tackle and make inroads into the international export market.
The aim of this manual is to provide olive growers and processors with internationally based guidelines for ensuring the quality and safety of processed table olives. This manual covers all aspects essential for the production of safe, nutritious and marketable table olives including site selection, recommended varieties, pest and disease control, primary and secondary processing, and quality and safety testing.
Covers all aspects of production from site selection, recommended varieties, pest and disease control, through to primary and secondary processing
Written for growers and processors in a straightforward style
Well illustrated with photos, graphs and tables
8 page colour section
“From a dissertation on the industry, through to orchid management to processing, the information is detailed, technical and very comprehensive.” (NZ TreeCropper)
