Olive Oil in Croatia

Those that use a lot of oil for their dishes will surely be left wanting to taste Croatia’s Olive Oil. Croatia produces it’s own oil in the perfect climate for them to grow in. A whopping 10% of the country’s oil being produced in Istria, a place considered to make the finest of all oils in the world, with several hundred independent producers producing as much as 450 tonnes of “liquid gold” a year.

The oil, and more particularly extra virgin olive oil from Istria has been prized for millennia, olive oil being strongly associated with Istria region; even being a symbol of sorts since the 1st century AD. And if you thought that the olive oil was only admired in Croatia; the olive oil has been named as the world’s best olive oil region. And if you don’t believe that, in the annual New York international Olive Oil Competition, some of the finest olive oils from Croatia picked up a whopping twelve gold medals and seven silver medals between them; including Istria oils.
