The launch of US operations came after several years of analysis of the rapidly growing US market and aligned with the companies mission to produce high quality, locally grown Extra Virgin olive oils in key markets. US consumers have shown a preference for higher quality Extra Virgin olive oils as a healthy enhancement to their everyday culinary experience.
In July of 2014 Boundary Bend purchased a 9 acre industrial property in Woodland California for the construction of an olive oil mill, bottling facilities, olive oil laboratory, and administrative offices. This site serves as the production facility for Boundary Bend in California. Subsequent facilities are planned in other areas of the state as production volumes increase. The city of Woodland was selected due to its geographic proximity as an agricultural hub and is ideally located for transportation of products to the West Coast and broader US market.
In October 2017 the first harvest of Californian olives from Boundary Bend grown trees was carried out.
At Boundary Bend we have replicated the success of the vertically integrated Australian business model in the US, taking a conservative, sustainable, and long term approach to the development of the US business strategy. We are excited by the tremendous success achieved to date by the Californian olive industry and look forward to working with the growers and processors to grow the demand for high quality Californian Extra Virgin olive oils.
