Greek olive oil producer GAEA growing the U.S. market from South Florida

A major producer of high-quality olive oil in Greece — GAEA S.A. (pronounced GUY-uh) — has launched a new initiative in South Florida to expand its sales to the United States, the world’s largest importer of olive oil.

“Greece is one of the world’s largest producers of olive oil, especially authentic, high-quality EVOO (extra-virgin olive oil), and GAEA was set up in 1995 to export the country’s olive oil and other food products,” said David Neuman, CEO of GAEA North America, who opened the company’s subsidiary in Hollywood earlier this year.
