For more than two thousand years, olives and olive oil have played a major economic role in Istria, becoming emblematic of the region. Historical evidence, inscriptions and archaeological discoveries attest to the cultivation of the olive tree and the production of oil since the Roman Empire. In 2019, the first Istrian cooperative of extra virgin olive oil producers was established: PZ Maslinari Istre.


The global success of Istrian olive oils is attributed to the region's unique geographical position, on the northern frontier of olive growing, providing optimal conditions for high-quality olives. The know-how and dedication of olive growers, such as Sandro Grabrovic, have contributed to this success. Saša Ukusić, manager of the cooperative, emphasizes the pride of their extra virgin olive oil labeled Protected Designation of Origin guaranteeing a certified high-quality product.
