Flos Olei, the World Guide Through the World of Extra Virgin Olive Oils, proclaimed Istria the best world olive growing region in 2016. It was the first time that this prestigious guide that evaluates quality oils and particularly values indigenous olive varieties has ranked Istria ahead of the so far invincible Tuscany.
The international success strengthens the brand positioning of Istria as a gourmet destination. The first Flos Olei listings took place back in 2005 with the quality of Istrian olive oils reconfirmed ever since. It should be noted that this year’s edition of the guide features olive oils from 49 countries and five continents, and the Istrian oils have been rated as being particularly quality.
Ol Istria extra virgin olive oil has been synonymous with a standard of quality among Istrian olive oils for half a century, as continuously attested by numerous national and international awards. All our oils obtained by processing olives from our own groves are distinguished by their particularly high content of natural antioxidants.
