RIO VISTA OLIVES EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL CHAMPIONS IN SYDNEY ROYAL!

A competition renowned for setting benchmarks in agricultural excellence has crowned a South Australian as its champion in Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Flavoured Oils. With Australian produce being known for being some of the best, the competition is never easy in the Sydney Royal Fine Food Show. Up against some of the Country’s best producers the field is always tough.

Showing again that South Australia has some of the best produce in Australia, Rio Vista Olives was proud to take our Champion Blended Extra Virgin Olive Oil for their Premium Reserve Series Gigi Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Champion Flavoured Oil for their Chilli Pressed Olive Oil.
