Croatian Island Product Label Holders Announced

By 28 October 2018

Some of the newly announced Croatian Island Product label holders are, of course, coming from the island of Korčula, from Lumbarda, Korčula town, Žrnovo, Blato and Vela Luka. 


The label has been present since 2007, with the idea to allow the promotion of the products created on the Croatian islands. More than 300 producers of the authentic products from 24 Croatian islands are currently allowed to put the label on more than a thousand products.

Even before 2018, many producers from Korčula were on the prestigious list, some ever since the beginning of this promotion, such as Cukarin, but several new producers and products from the island were added to the list this year, on a presentation held on the island of Hvar, as a part of the celebration of the Days of Croatian Tourism.


Sanja Protić from Blato - "Lumblija" cake to-go and extra grape jam
Škatula from Korčula (who we've already written about) - "Karat" Carob Spread and Lumbarajske korkande (fried pastry)
Žrnovski Makaruni association from Žrnovo - traditional pasta
Vlaho Komparak Family Farm - Heather honey
Cukarin - Korčulanska lojenica, a traditional and unique cake from Korčula
Ankica Bažika from Lumbarda - tangerine marmalade and dried fig jam
Vedranka Katić from Korčula - variants of the Smokvun fig deserts
Zlinje, a tavern from Blato - another Lumblija cake
Teo Grbin family farm from Vela Luka for strawberry tree and bitter orange jam, and St. John+s Wort oil
Franica Mandić from Vela luka for her line of nautical rope knot jewellery
Tonči Milišić from Korčula for a traditional hand-made fishing trap

So, now there's more than 20 producers from Korčula, whose dozens of products, including various wines, olive oils, traditional cakes and deserts, liqueurs, jams, vinegars, and other types of souvenirs are given the label of Croatian Island Product, which signifies the quality, innovation and authenticity of the producer and the product.
