UNITED… THROUGHOUT THE YEARS (Our Story)
It all started back in 1916 when the Asaro family began the production of olive oil. Throughout the years, the family has been successful in Italy with its devotion to crafting olive oil and distributing it to a large number of people. In 2004, Tommaso Asaro took lead and established the family business under the name of United Olive Oil Import Co. (UOOI). He, then, expanded and handled wholesale and retail distribution of the family’s original olive oil brands as well as other famous international brands in the U.S.
What kept us strong and growing throughout these years you may ask. Well, UOOI takes pride in its transparency and consistency within our business. Thus, we have fostered strong relationships with our clients, distributors and our people. After all, we are all united to bring the best quality products to your homes.
QUALITY AND PORTFOLIO
The quality of our products is distinguished by its richness; we use fresh raw material that has been processed within the very first few hours of picking olives from our farms. Therefore, we are proud to have major milestones such as winning the New York Olive Oil Competition, The LA County Fair Olive Oil competition and many more.
Our portfolio of brands includes an exclusive selection of Italy’s finest producers of olive oil. With a focus of exponential growth in the business, UOOI is dedicated to play its part in educating customers with a deep and thorough understanding of olive oil, its health benefits, and how to distinguish its quality. Our commitment to Olive Oil education is considered a strong pillar of our business and our values.
In addition to an array of olive oil selection that are available, we also distribute a variety of specialty foods like olives, lentils, pasta, spreads etc.
