CIRIO Italy partners with United Food Brands to enter the UK Olive Oil, Glazes and Vinegar categories.

However, as Cirio is Italy’s favourite food brand, with over 150 years of heritage and tradition and an already existing customer base in the UK, we see this as a fantastic opportunity to help further grow the brand in the UK.
