Dear Amanda,   It was nice speaking with you today. As per our conversation Australia Sourcing & Exporting specialises in sourcing Australian products for export globally. Our company was founded in 2002 and we have offices in Brisbane and Noosaville, Queensland.

We currently export beer, wine and non-alcoholic beverages into India and China and as discussed we are in the process of adding olive oil to our list of products. We are working with Trade & Investment Queensland (TIQ) and Austrade to identify potential customers for these products in India & China.

Based upon research conducted in our target markets we will be presenting a premium range of Australian made olive oils to the prospective customers, we are looking for Extra Virgin Olive Oil with a mild to medium flavour. We would expect that our customers would require bottle sizes of between 250ml up to 1 litre. The size of the orders that we will potentially place will vary from one pallet to a full container load. The ongoing volume requirement is difficult to estimate at this early stage, however, it could be many container loads per year.

TIQ & Austrade will be making a presentation to the prospective customers in Mumbai & New Delhi in India.

If you could please provide the details of any Queensland growers/processors that could support our requirements it would be greatly appreciated.

I would be pleased to answer any questions that you may have and look forward to receiving a list of Queensland suppliers.

Kind regards

Ian Tait ~ Director

About amandabailey

1997 the year I stepped into the Olive World in Australia. Since then I have had the privilege of working with many specialist researchers from all facets within the Industry from Australia and overseas. I am passionate about olives & our industry. I dedicate my work to enhance the production of groves (in all aspects of olives) through to commercial production. As founder of The Olive Centre, I wanted to be able to take out much of the guess work that growers in the earlier days faced in the trialling of equipment for the application of their use in Olives. This is the area I specialise in today in the Equipment, Machinery & Advice and provide a One-Stop-Shop to all Olive Growers. I have maintained a working relationship with well over 200 suppliers in order to bring the most up-to-date and cost effective equipment available today. All our equipment & machinery has been trialled in the commercial application of olives and through this our team at The Olive Centre hopes to ... help you achieve the maximum from your grove. Only through working together can we achieve a viable industry.
