A Celebration of STAR's Rich Heritage

In 1898 Angelo Giurlani left Lucca, Italy. With money borrowed from his father, Angelo migrated to
San Francisco and started selling groceries house to house from his horse-drawn wagon. This experience plus hard work earned this enterprising young man a successful business.

When brother Giuseppe moved to San Francisco to join Angelo, they began importing olive oil from Italy and selling under “Giurliani STAR Olive Oil." They chose the name "STAR" to demonstrate their patriotism to the United States. As other fine imported foods where added, the brothers expanded their markets to Southern California and nearby Western states.

Throughout time, STAR Olive Oil has won many international awards, proving STAR’s unwavering commitment to quality. In the early 1900’s, the majority of STAR Olive Oil was packaged in tins that proudly showcased these awards and accolades that the company received.

Now, almost 120 years later, STAR is celebrating the rich heritage and tradition of its olive oil tin with a limited edition collection of three new tins. These tins capture the vintage elements of STAR's tins throughout the years, from 1898 to present day. You can find these tins at select Save Mart and Fred Meyer stores and at our online store! Check out the evolution of the STAR Olive Oil tin below.
