Istria and its producers have for the seventh consecutive year been awarded and included among the 15 best in the world. This year the honor went to Giancarlo Zigante from Livada and Olei b.b., owned by Bosiljka and Duilio Belić from Rabac.

This year's edition of "Flos Olei" presents 43 countries and 460 global producers with their best products, which were chosen among more than three thousand samples by a team of experts.

The guide was recently launched at the hotel Casino Mulino in Škrile, near Buje, where producers were handed their awards by the founder and publisher of the guide Marco Oreggia, a journalist and eno-gastronomic critic and a world recognized expert on olive oil. The film ‘OrgOlio Istriano - L'olio d'oliva extravergine’ (Pride of Istria - Extra virgin olive oil)" premiered at the ceremony.

Kroatien har en lång turisttradition och stora utvecklingsmöjligheter. Fördelarna med turistprodukten är de bevarade naturtillgångarna och miljön, det kulturella och historiska arvet, det ljumma medelhavsklimatet, närheten till de europeiska marknaderna samt möjligheten till en aktiv semester på ekologiskt skyddade resmål.
