A helping hand for your olive business success.

For nearly a century, Bell-Carter Foods has operated on two fundamental principles: first, a promise to provide only the highest-quality olive products in the world, and second, a powerful commitment to helping our valued retail partners succeed. That means seamless customer service, with personal attention from a proactive sales team and a wide range of comprehensive support services, from logistics to category management and merchandising.

Quality Assurance

At Bell-Carter Foods, we attest to the superior quality of our olives through our commitment to food safety and quality manufacturing practices that are above and beyond industry standards. In addition to our ISO 9001:2008 certification, in June 2009 our Corning, California production facility was awarded the highest food safety and quality certification available, Safe Quality Food (SQF) 2000 Level 3.

Customer Service

With more than 100 years of combined experience, the Bell-Carter Foods Customer Service group works with uncompromising integrity to meet the needs of our customers in a timely and efficient manner. With an assigned representative for every customer and a nationwide integrated broker network, we are able to achieve results through unparalleled teamwork and personal attention.


Bell-Carter Foods offers a vast network of distribution centers in all major markets across the U.S., allowing us to ship within 48 hours after receipt of order, and from single-pallet orders to full railcar orders. We strive to be as flexible as possible for our customers, with services such as extended shipping dock hours and the availability of non-standard CHEP and PECO pallets. Additionally, we are members of the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) and the Warehouse, Education and Research Council (WERC).
