In the 2020/21 crop year, the company produced 5,000 liters of extra virgin olive oil in Istria using traditional methods. OPG Damir Vanđelić earned the Gold Award for its medium Nono Remiđo Rosignola. The company won the Silver Award with its medium Nono Remiđo Buža.
"We are happy that our effort to produce the highest quality extra virgin olive oil has been recognized," Damir Vanđelić, the company's CEO, said. "These awards will help us increase international sales."
He added that the award was all the more gratifying after frequent rains delayed the olive harvest and created other challenges.
