Extraordinary success of the Istrian extra virgin olive oils
The New Year begins with new success! Istria has been declared best olive oil region in the world also in 2018, for the third time in a row. It is a great success for this green Adriatic peninsula where olive oil has been produced for more than two thousand years.
The quality of Istrian oils is improving more and more every year, and the number of Istrian olive oil producers in Flos Olei, the only extra virgin olive oil world guide, is constantly increasing.
Flos Olei 2018 gives insight to the results of accurate tasting of a large number of samples, presenting olive oil production from 51 countries and from five continents.
In this popular “bible” of extra virgin olive oils, a total of 77 oils from Croatia have been included, 11 more than last year, out of which two are from Dalmatia, and 75 from Istria. Moreover, almost all olive oil producers have achieved better results, proving that the effort for quality sake is visible and rewarded.
