Laboratory Services

Modern Olives is the only specialist olive oil laboratory in Australia.

Modern Olives have established a NATA accredited commercial olive oil laboratory at our facility in Lara, VIC. Using the most advanced instruments available, and the most experienced and qualified team we can provide a comprehensive range of olive and olive oil tests that are required for quality, authenticity and labelling purposes.

Our objective is not only to provide the analytical results but also to work together with growers and associations in applied research projects trying to solve their specific needs with an integrated approach.

The laboratory is available to all growers, oil traders, marketers and researches’ who require their fruit and oil tested.

As well as a fast turn around time we are also offering expert advice on interpreting your results and how these relate to the activities within the grove, including optimal harvest time and how to make the most of your varieties with blending.
