Modern Olives Technical Director Leandro Ravetti comments "Receiving recognition for the accuracy of our laboratory proficiency program by the most prestigious oil society in the world and a highly independent body is a great honour for our lab and for Australia”. “It reinforces the fact that our scientists, knowledge and research in olive oil chemistry are of the highest standards”.
