Croatian Olive Oil
If you are looking for some of the best olive oil in the world, you will want to check out what Croatia has to offer. With a tradition of olive oil production spanning more than two thousand years, the country has earned a reputation for producing high-quality oils thanks to its favorable climate and geographical location. Istrian Buža olive oil is one of the most popular varieties, known for its excellent quality and pleasantly bitter and piquant taste. However, if the fruits are harvested a little later, the oil becomes sweeter and fruitier. Istarska Bjelica is another native variety that is characterized by a fresh aroma but with a quite piquant and bitter taste. All olive oils differ greatly in taste, so it is important to pay attention to the aroma and bitterness of the oil when choosing the right one for your needs. Fruitier oils can be perfectly combined with seafood or salads, while spicy olive oils go well with dishes such as cheese, grilled meat, or vegetables. The high quality of Croatian olive oils is primarily due to the quality philosophy of its olive farmers. The olives are usually harvested by hand and the olive oil pressing takes place a few hours after harvesting. This ensures that all the oils you can find in our store come from olive plantations managed in an ecologically sustainable manner. So it is not surprising that Croatian olive oil is honored with numerous awards every year. At the international competition FLOS OLEI, Croatia’s peninsula Istria has been named the best olive oil region in the world for seven consecutive years.
