Map of the olive grove

Olive grove is divided into a regular orthogonal grid, recalling the Roman legacy of land centuriation – a method of land measurement, within which five native olive varieties, plus the the two Italian ones, are cultivated.

Company

Oleum Maris is a young company founded in 2005 on the grounds of diversity, tolerance and unity.

The company owners showed courage in embracing a new beginning - by planting the largest olive grove in southern Istria on previously fire devastated land. Together, through their own means and with the help of the local community, they opted for new challenges, starting a company based on the principles of socially responsible business. Continuous training, care about quality, innovation in collaboration with professional institutions, are the basic principles of Oleum Maris. The company’s vision is to offer their customers an overall experience related to olive growing and creating high quality olive oil produced at an attractive, well positioned location.

Innovations

The Oleum Maris company continuously collaborates with scientific and educational institutions in Croatia and Istria in order to improve its business and help educate new professionals in olive growing through the acquisition of practical knowledge about olive cultivation, production and processing of olive oil.

We are innovators in the production of useful machines and tools which can improve the maintenance of olive groves, thus devising a prototype for watering and fertilizing the olive groves that saves fertilizer through specific embedded sensors, dosing the water with added liquid humus.



The company cooperates with the Faculty of Agriculture in Zagreb, University of Applied Sciences in Poreč, Institute of Agriculture and Tourism, also in Poreč and the Pula Open University - Diopter - related to the training programs for adults in olive growing.
