Sovena is a 100% family owned company with 100 years of experience in fast moving consumer goods. We are involved in every step of the way – from the olive tree to the store shelf – and own tens of thousands of olive groves worldwide. We are structurally a sustainable company - We promote recycling of all materials in our factories and offices – this includes waste from the picking of the olive; We control water consumption using drop-by-drop irrigation systems; We produce around 75,000 tons of biodiesel per year; And we don’t buy carbon credits to compensate emissions, we plant trees - more than 10 million olive trees already.

The country's largest importer of olive oil, Sovena USA supplies more than 50% of all private label olive oil sold in the U.S., as well as distributing branded products GEM® and Olivari® Olive Oil. Sovena USA offers a full portfolio of edible oils including olive oils, organic oils, high‐volume frying oils, and a complete line of vinegars. Based in Rome, NY, our state of the art bottling facility is complemented by our on‐site quality control lab – the only lab of its kind on U.S. soil, which helped make us the first olive oil plant in the world to obtain Safe Quality Food (SQF) level 3 certification.
