Best Olive Oils Croatia
Croatian olive oil is regarded as one of the best olive oils in the world.
There are almost 50,000 olive oil producers in Croatia.
Olive oil is mainly produced in Istria, the Kvarner region and Dalmatia. Some olive trees are considered to be extremely old, perhaps as old as 1500 years.
Olive oil's production and agrotourism in general are becoming more and more important economic and cultural activities in Croatia.
Croatia's slightly cooler climate produces tastier olives, which are rich in antioxidants and unsaturated fatty acids. It also facilitates the cultivation of several varieties of olives.
Buža and Istarska bjelica are the most common varieties in Istria, Oblica and Paštrica in Dalmatia, as well as Drobnica, Mastrinka, Morazola, etc. Each of these olive cultivars has its own specific characteristics.
This wide range of varieties and the use of various modern production techniques have enabled Croatian olive oil to be broadly perceived as a product of premium quality.
Every year, an increasing number of Croatian producers participate in the best olive oil competitions in the world, including our own competition « Dubaiooc » which is held in Dubai.
