Headquartered in Fresno, California, Borges USA is one of America’s leading importers and marketers of Mediterranean specialty food products. The company is a member of the Borges Mediterranean Group, a 115 year-old Spanish food company with distribution in over 110 countries. Borges USA markets four leading brands of specialty Mediterranean food products that are sold to grocery, club, mass merchandiser and foodservice accounts.
STAR Fine Foods traces its roots back to 1898 in San Francisco when the Giurlani family started importing and distributing olive oil under the STAR brand. “STAR” was chosen as the brand name to show their American patriotism. Over the years products have been added to the portfolio: balsamic and wine vinegars, olives, peppers, and capers. STAR is now the #1 selling brand of olive oil, wine vinegar and Spanish green olives in retail grocery stores in the Western United States and growing in distribution in the rest of the US. STAR Fine Foods was acquired by Borges in 1995.
