The History of Bari
Bari Olive Oil started in 1936 by the Pantaleo family, who were originally from Bari, Italy. At the time, the company was known as the “California Olive Oil Manufacturing Co,” however when the company was purchased in 2008 by the Ugaste family, the name was changed to “Bari Olive Oil Co.”
Despite the name change, we have been a kitchen staple in homes of families across California for over 80 years. We maintain our traditional origins by making sure that the production process and our commitment to quality and consistency are never sacrificed.
Bari Olive Oil Company is still to this day family owned and operated by 5th generation farmers. We are fully committed to growing and producing the best quality California Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
We are dedicated to providing our customers and growers a range of exceptional services and options, unmatched by any other olive oil producer in California. Because of our commitment to providing only the highest quality products, Bari is one of the largest producers of CCOF Certified Organic EVOO.
All of our Extra Virgin Olive Oils are produced using California Olives that are grown within 40 miles of our facility, and milled at the peak of ripeness. Our quality milling process involves a 3.5 Ton/hr. Amenduni Mill in which we use to mill our olives. We also offer contracts to local growers as a custom milling and bottling facility.
