It's Raining Gold21/10/2008

Viva wins gold for its new season Table Olive and Extra Virgin Olive Oil!

Table Olive

Backing up from the 2007 win for the ripe manzanillo, Viva has received a gold medal from the 2008 Royal Hobart Fine Food Expo and Silver from the 2008 Olives SA Competition for its 2008 Green Jumbo Kalamata.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Proud of the 2008 harvest from Viva’s affiliated farms, Viva chose to enter a single blend into the Royal Melbourne Fine Food Expo, Olives SA Competition and finally the AOA Expo (held in Canberra) to see how Viva’s peers rated its 2008 EVOO. 

To date September has seen Viva win the Champion’s Trophy for the Commercial Extra Virgin Olive Oil category from the Royal Melbourne Find Food Awards and a Gold Award from the Olives SA Competition with its 2008 Early Harvest EVOO Blend. 

The results of the AOA Expo Judging is expected in the last week of October and given the recent results Viva is hopeful of another award.

Pitted Manzanillo and Olive Mix EntertainersThe two new olive entertainer lines are Pitted Manzanillo and Olive Mix. As with all of Viva's products, the table fruit used for these new lines are exclusively sourced from Viva's affiliated Australian Olive Plantations which have proven to produce award winning quality produce.

Premium Cold Processed Extra Virgin Olive OilThe final line to be launched with Coles is Viva's first Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil product.

As with the entertainer packs above, look out for attractive introductory promotions within Coles over the coming weeks.

ABC's 7.30 report on Imported Olive Oil08/10/2008

On the 8th October 2008 the ABC's 7:30 Report ran a story on the Importation of Olive Oil to Australia. You may wish to go to, select Archives, October 2008 and have a look at the "Imported Olive Oil Under Scrutiny" story. It is good to hear our Federal Minister of Agriculture backing the Australian product.

Viva's Taste for Sport24/03/2008

As a proudly Australian owned company Viva has chosen to show its support for Australia's newest international golf championship "The Moonah Classic" which was staged at the open course of Moonah Links on Victoria's famous Mornington Peninsula in late February 2008.

This event is the third event on the 2008 Nationwide Tour schedule, and consolidates the strong US and Australian Tour relationship which over the past five years has proven to be a successful career platform for many young Australian golfers.
