AOA direct communications and industry media coverage will provide maximum exposure for your business, with the added bonus of you being showcased to growers as active supporters of their industry. 

Sponsorship provides prominent exposure to the industry from May to December (the sooner you sign up the greater the exposure) in a way that builds brand strength and positioning throughout the supply chain, with direct links to company websites for sales.

Sponsorships are particularly popular for companies who don’t want to invest the resources required to support an exhibition stand but still want awareness of their products and services while demonstrating support for the industry.

If you are interested in becoming a sponsor for the 2023 conference, please contact Gerri Nelligan at [email protected] or on 0408 525 798.

Novonesis

Novonesis (Novozymes Australia Pty Ltd. ) In 2024 Novozymes and Chr. Hansen joined forces to form Novonesis.​With true collaboration and unparalleled technology, we can help transform your business through biology. Our commitment to the Australian food and beverage industry remains unchanged.

Key benefits of using Novonesis’ enzymes for olive oil production;
Yield increase: Depending on the fruit condition, enzymes can increase yields by 1-2%. This also means a more environmentally friendly process with less residual oil in the pomace.
Perfectly suited for early harvest fruit: Enzymes allow us to start harvest earlier in order to obtain better quality oils without compromising oils yields.
A smoother industrial process: Since paste viscosity is lowered, the processing equipment energy consumption is also decreased. By releasing oil from the paste quicker, enzymes allow for a faster, more effective process.
Faster oil clarification: The enzymes’ paste/ oil separation activity gives way to cleaner oils at the end of the industrial process, reducing their clarification time.
