The Olive Growers Council was organized as a bargaining cooperative with the mission to try to improve prices paid to farmers for their table olives delivered to the commercial processors.
Always with an attitude of being fair and reasonable, the bargaining association has impacted the olive industry in a positive way as prices have moved up significantly since 1978-79 when the olive price to growers barely allowed enough money to harvest the crop. From an average price in 1978 of under $200 per ton, growers now enjoy price ranges from $1,000 to $1,200 per ton.
The Olive Growers Council has been the moving force in taking table olive prices to a higher level.
