Two Western Australian olive businesses are heading on a new path, now under the guidance of Zagro Asia.
A publicly listed group in Singapore with 60 years of experience in the agribusiness industry, Zagro has an industry presence in more than 70 countries worldwide. The company has decided to selectively invest in the agri-farming of non-commoditized products, with olive farming identified as one promising avenue.
The 7000-tree Wickham Olive Grove at Gingin has been purchased by the company in Western Australia and will continue to produce a range of high quality Kalamata table olives and olive oil. Following organic practices and free from chemical application, Wickham Grove is the only olive producer in Western Australia producing Kalamata olives exclusively in its own processing plant.
Zagro has also taken a strategic interest in Eagle Vale Olives, in the Chapman Valley north of Perth. A family run business for 20 years, the owners felt it was time for another company who share the same aspirations and passion to expand Eagle Vale Olives to an international level.
The business produces a quality range of olive products, from table olives, tapenade and infused olive oils to award winning extra virgin olive oil.
Zagro Asia are now looking for importers and distributors for these high quality olive products, and welcome enquiries from interested parties.
