I thought I’d show some love to the olive industry in the southern hemisphere. Harvesting has begun and will continue for a couple more months depending on several factors like region, weather, labor, equipment, cultivar, fruit maturity, and product (table olives or extra virgin olive oil).
Here, listed in alphabetical order, are the countries on the south side that have active olive-related trade associations and websites. There are other countries in the southern hemisphere that grow olives and produce table olives and olive oil, but for various reasons do not have active industry organizations.
May the sun shine through your branches.
