What is ILOVEACEITE US?
ILOVEACEITE US, Inc is a Spanish olive oil, wine and food company headquartered in San Antonio, Texas. ILOVEACEITE© works with distributors, wholesalers, retailers and food-service companies throughout the United States to deliver olive oil products produced in Spain.
Following the grand tradition of Spanish olive oil, the company has a heritage dating back to 1950 when Founder Fernando R. Ortega’s grandfather began work in the olive oil business.
For over 60 years, the Ortega family has produced 100 percent authentic extra virgin Spanish olive oil.
In 2009, third-generation olive oil producer Ortega, an attorney by trade, combined his Spanish heritage and passion for entrepreneurship to start ILOVEACEITE©.
Spain is the largest producer of olive oil, responsible for 44 percent of the world's supply.
The company produces 100 percent Spanish olive oil distributed through two international subsidiaries: Kochamoliwe, founded in Poland in 2011 and ILOVEACEITE US, Inc., founded in the United States in 2016.
Since establishing U.S. headquarters in San Antonio, TX, ILOVEACEITE© has expanded distribution to locations in Colorado, California, Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina and Idaho.
They supply the restaurant industry, sell directly online, and are working to introduce olive oil products to the retail market.
ILOVEACEITE© supports community events such as the 2018 Huarache Turbo’s Be My Valentine run and hosting Cenas Clandestinas, “Secret Dinners”. At the dinners, guests experience Spanish culture through food (featuring ILOVEACEITE© oil), company and conversation!
