Modern Olives Research.
Modern Olives has developed internal processes/methodologies that have become part of industry standard in olive oil.
Building a culture of research and innovation
Research and innovation are two driving forces for the operation at Modern Olives Laboratory. Our staff has published nearly 20 peer reviewed research papers and several technical notes, which is unprecedented for a private company in the industry. During the past twelve years, Modern Olives has developed internal processes/methodologies that have become part of industry standard in olive oil.
See below a list of companies we’ve completed research with;
CSIRO, Deakin University, LaTrobe University, Boundary Bend Olives, Hort Innovation Auburn University and Australian Olive Association (AOA.)
