This Rural Industries R&D Corporation report is the second part of a study on oil storage. Initial studies at the Australian Oil Research Laboratory (AORL), RIRDC Publication No. 09/160, “Effect of storage containers on olive oil quality”, investigated changes in oil quality when stored in extreme environmental conditions in a range of containers commonly used by growers in the olive oil industry. The oil in some cases deteriorated quickly, reducing oil quality within a short period, sometimes in only a few days.
