Virginia successfully competed with North Carolina for the project, which will create 29 new jobs.

The new facility, which will handle the company’s bulk oil imports from Argentina, Australia, and Spain, will operate under its subsidiary, Acesur USA LLC.

Established in 1840, Acesur has been active for more than 150 years producing, packaging, and marketing olive oil, and has a long history in the vegetable oils sector.

A leader within the national olive oil industry in Spain, Acesur also exports its products to more than 90 countries around the world.

Acesur is a vertically integrated company that controls the entire process from ground to bottle, allowing it to have one of the largest ranges of products in the industry, with established brands in the United States such as La Espanola, Italica, and Villa Blanca.

Acesur is committed to sustainability, giving back more than 10 times the energy it consumes through the recycling of its waste.
