This site was set up by a good friend of mine 11 yrs ago to cynically exploit the self aggrandizing foody. The oil is brought in in large drums and decanted into twee bottles that look good on the kitchen shelf, note the language used to describe these products.The key for him is the huge profit he makes by just decanting the oil. On Hvar my wifes family has about 200 trees, in Kalamata my friend has about 1000 trees. On Hvar the majority of the crop goes to the Coop the rest is turned into oil that is used for frying, baking, salads, as a sauce for fish and meat, mixed with egg yolk as hair conditioner, poured in your ear to get rid of wax etc.

Thank you for your interesting topic stretch about Croatian Olive Oil ...

Quite a complex and challenging Football Match between Spain and Croatia, last night ! Did you catch the match ?

Kind regards,
Ciao, Margi.
