Olive Harvest LLC

Imports and distributes extra virgin olive oil from koura region in North Lebanon.

In the year 2000, Mr. Chafic Maalouf, owner and general manager of Olive Harvest LLC, imported a small batch of extra virgin olive oil from his family's olive groves in North Lebanon into the United States. The unique olive oil was received with great excitement. Shortly after, and with high demand for the precious oil, continuous shipments started to flow in. As an agricultural Engineer, a crop Scientist, and a passionate olive oil maker, Mr. Maalouf devoted his experience and his talents into bringing the best quality olive oil into the US market at very affordable prices. Currently, Olive Harvest operates more than one hundred acres of olive groves in the fertile Koura region of North Lebanon with a projection of up to 500 acres by the year 2012. Olive Harvest's extra virigin is produced using all organic practices. It is cold pressed, unfiltered, and conforms to the highest standards as defined by USDA and by IOOC.
