Please note, if you are wishing to use the OliveMark on oil purchased from another grower then:
1. the transfer of ownership of the oil must be registered with Olive NZ and a Certification certificate issued to the purchaser (there is no charge for this)
2. the purchaser must be a current OliveMark licensee
3. the label to be used on the oil must be approved by Olives NZ.
To check that the oil you are purchasing is certified refer to the list of Certified Oils. If the oil is not specifically  listed then it is probably NOT certified and therefore not going to be eligible for use of the OliveMark.

Members who buy bulk NZ EVOO award winning oil from another member may apply to Olives New Zealand to use the respective medals subject to the approval of the seller and provided they are an OliveMark licensee and their label is approved by Olives New Zealand.

“Selling Bulk EVOO” presentation given by John Arthur at Conference 2012:

  1. Harvest your fruit at the optimal time
  2. Ensure the fruit is processed as soon as possible after harvesting
  3. Process olive varieties separately – purchasers prefer to buy specific oil varietals
  4. Process your fruit at a plant with high standards and a current Food Safety Plan
  5. Store your oil in stainless steel tanks at between 15 and 18 degrees Celsius
  6. Have your oils certified by Olives New Zealand

Remember – the sooner you have your oil certified, the sooner you will be able to sell it.
