California Olive Growers, former producers of Oberti Olives, have ceased operation and closed their Madera, CA facility. All equipment from the factory will be sold at a public auction starting on Tuesday, October 10th.
The humble beginnings of Oberti Olives began in the 1930′s on a family-run farm, where Oberti began producing olive oil. The Oberti taste quickly gained popularity, eventually necessitating modern machinery and several hundred employees to produce enough oil to meet the demand. With time, the Oberti brand diversified to black ripe olives and a host of other supermarket goods.
Complete olive and tomato processing and canning lines will be available, in addition to warehouse and office equipment.
The auction, conducted by San Francisco auction firm Rabin Worldwide, will be held onsite in Madera and online at http://www.rabin.com. For more information, contact Rabin Worldwide at (800)421-2144 or via email at
