From father to son
It was back in the early 1960s that Boulos Maroun revolutionized olive oil production in Lebanon by institutionalizing the bottling process and taking it to another level. An entrepreneur and innovator by nature, Boulos Maroun started packing olive oil in bottles and gallons, instead of the usual tins, to market it more efficiently to Lebanese households.
As the business grew, Boulos Maroun began manufacturing a superior Lebanese olive oil towards 1964, which would later become Zeit Boulos. What started as a revolutionary idea quickly became a family passion, which was passed on from Boulos to his son, Tony. Thanks to the valuable experience of his father, Tony Maroun successfully expanded Zeit Boulos and turned it into Lebanon’s leading producer of olive oil.
