Who are Viva Olives?
But they didn’t stop at their (now) 65,000 pistachio trees.
In fact—they went even further with a new line of produce, growing their olive orchard to more than 120,000 trees and serving the growing global affinity for extra virgin olive oil and table olives.
Terry’s self-proclaimed love for the trees, combined with Luba’s passion for innovation, flavour and quality, ensure the olives, oil, pistachios and other products coming out of Viva are some of the best you’ll find in Australia. The couple want to produce quality over quantity and has fostered a local team of skilled experts to make this happen.
We want to rejuvenate the Viva brand, upgrade operations, and create jobs in the local region.

Why you’ll love their produce…
Unlike others, the Viva process delivers high quality olives to their place of processing quickly, ensuring they’re not degraded.
Not only this, but new technology in their processing ensures they remove any defective product so it doesn’t go into the oil. All of this combines to provide your palate with a robust oil unlike any other in Australia. In fact, at nearby Salena Estates, the Italian chef prefers Viva’s olive oil to all others, and Viva is shipped around Australia to fine-dining restaurants.
Luba has also been experimenting with the flavour for years and is now using native ingredients with their Kalamata olives to enhance their taste. They also lay claim to having the best-tasting pistachios in Australia, with their Mallee orchard providing the perfect desert temperatures. Unbelievably, these nuts have a unique characteristic, in that they go a beautiful pink colour before harvest unlike any other.
