Meet the founders
Being partners in life and in business, Katerina & Constantinos started Olive Roots in 2016 in the United States with the vision to provide retailers with authentic Greek foods made by artisan producers as opposed to mass production items. In order to achieve this, they invented the concept of “scalable authenticity” by helping producers increase their production capabilities without discounts in quality.
Fast forward to today, Olive Roots has evolved to a global food sourcing and consolidation company, partnering with prestigious retailers from every corner of the world, providing them with an unparallel service with regards to imported items from Europe and beyond. Today, Olive Roots, has made it possible for category managers to bring to their shelves foods from every corner of Europe in a seamless process without having to worry about negotiations with suppliers, minimum quantities, labeling, regulatory compliance, logistics and importation hassles and marketing.
