Meet Our Family
Thank you for visiting our Web site! We appreciate you supporting our business. It’s a deeply personal endeavor and we’re glad you would like to learn more about us!
There’s several reasons we started this project. In no particular order:
After losing 85lbs (and counting), I realized the true importance of food to your diet. Sticking to a combo of Keto and Intermittent Fasting, which utilized a lot of high quality and real extra virgin olive oil, I dropped well below the 300lbs I had been for over a decade. Real extra virgin olive oil helps with weight loss.
Our family, wife Kristen and daughter Kenley, went on trips to Greece and Italy recently. And I still lost weight…owing a lot to the quality of the food. Everywhere you go, food is real and fresh. And both of those countries have less food related health issues than the US.
As a proud Greek/American, I know there is a gap in the market of Greek extra virgin olive oil. Most Greek olive oil producers send their product to Italy and Spain to be combined as a blend, and they’re happy with the arrangement. But, a lot of enterprising Greeks, after years of financial crisis at home, are getting smart and breaking into new markets. We’re helping that along!
Our most important reason for starting this was to try something new, as life is special and not guaranteed. In August of 2017, my wonderful wife and I endured the hardest day of our life, when we lost our precious baby boy to a miscarriage. When you’re confronted with life and death, you start to take stock of what is important and what is not. And with that, we decided to try something new. Hence, Carter Imports, named after him to honor his memory and the driving force for what we do.
