California Olive Ranch has received commitments for an equity investment of $35 million led by a major US-based institutional investor and existing investors. As the largest equity investment funding ever in the domestic extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) industry, California Olive Ranch sets its sights on making U.S. olive oil a significant player on the global stage.
On the basis of the tremendous success of California Olive Ranch over the past five years, this investment enables future expansion to support the insatiable consumer demand for premium California EVOO. This contribution is an investment in the future of U.S. olive oil.
“With the support of our investors, this round of funding supports the planting of new acreage for California Olive Ranch, but is also an investment in the future of olive oil,” says President Gregg Kelley. “This investment will accelerate the future of the American olive oil movement, innovate our sustainable harvesting methods and revolutionize our production technology.”
