Visiting Oljarna Lisjak:

The tradition of our olive oil dates back to 1992. Our family was one of the first olive-growing families in the area. A generation before that was already involved in the olive story. We are carefully nurturing the long tradition that has been handed down to us, building on this knowledge and building our story, the story of the Lisjak brand of extra virgin olive oil.

We have our own oil mill and we also process olives for other customers. We hand-harvest the olives and in just a few hours we extract the highest quality, cold-processed olive oil, the so-called green gold. We are part of the IFs certification body, which guarantees the highest level of traceability and product quality. Our mission is to offer the highest quality olive oil while educating about olive oil and the importance of quality.

We have also added a line of olive wood products and olive oil cosmetics to our olive oil range, and we are very active in the tourism industry.
