This invaluable industry resource includes comprehensive annually updated: olivegrower and processor listings, supplier listings, Buyers’ Guide (a one-stop supply shop), organisations, calendar of events, statistics and annual industry overview. This is distributed nationally and internationally as part of the Olivegrower & Processor subscription package and individual purchases.
