Since 1942, the Musco Family Olive Company has been focused on providing the highest quality olives to the foodservice industry. Nearly 80 years later, we’re prouder than ever to supply many of the California Black Ripe and Sliced Olives found in restaurants across the country.
The California Difference
As the only 100% California-owned, family-run full-line olive business in America, the Musco Family Olive Company is known for outstanding, uncompromising quality. Our supply chain has been the same for decades, anchored by long-term relationships with multi-generational California farmers. Our black ripe olives are sourced from over 450 California growers — each one a valued member of our extended family. Our process is completely transparent, resulting in consistently superior-quality olives from tree to table. Our competitors, on the other hand, mix and match different types of olives from a variety of countries, resulting in inconsistent textures and flavors.
Musco utilizes a traditional seven-day, slow-cure process to yield the best tasting olives money can buy. Hand-picked and hand-sorted, our black ripe olives are cured using sea salt and water. Lower quality imports cut corners, using only a three-day curing process. Try any of our Pearls or Early California products and you will taste the difference immediately. But don’t just take our word for it; 250% of consumers prefer California Black Ripe Olives to Spanish imports. Contact us to taste for yourself!
