high quality Tuscan olive oil producer Bellucci Premium comments on an article regarding the ten nations who supply the most olive oil to the United States.

In an article published by GreekReporter on December 13th titled “Greece Among Top Ten Suppliers of Olive Oil to USA,”a report concerning the import market of olive oil in the United States is examined. Greece’s place in the United States’ olive oil market is compared to other top suppliers. The top supplying olive oil nations to the United States continue to be Spain and Italy. The article discusses how Greece continues to fall short to not only Spain and Italy, but also to countries like Tunisia and Morocco. Greece did not make the top 5 list.

Natalie Sexenian, marketing manager for high-quality Tuscan olive oil producer Bellucci Premium, comments, “It is interesting to see that Greece does not have a very large place in the United States’ olive oil market, considering they are the number three largest producer globally. Similarly, it is interesting that the United States imports Italian olive oil more than Spanish olive oil, considering Spain is the largest producer of olive oil in the world.

Another big competitor in the United States’ olive oil market that is unmentioned in the article is Turkey. Additionally, one of the reasons that Morocco exceeds Greece in its olive oil exports to the United States is the production growth and olive expansion plan that the country has implemented.”

Bellucci offers three different types of oil, including an organic option, with a mild peppery flavor and fruity undertones that will satisfy any palate. Bellucci Premium Toscano extra virgin olive oil uses olives that are grown on the beautiful landscapes of Tuscany, and maintained by 3rd and 4th generation farmers. The third type of oil Bellucci produces is the finest 100% Italian extra virgin olive oil, grown in many different regions of Italy.
