Croatian Island Products Given Stamp Of Quality

Forty-seven Croatian island manufacturers received the “Croatian Island Product” (Hrvatski Otocni Proizvod) quality label from the Ministry of Regional Development and EU Funds last night at a presentation held on the central Dalmatian island of Hvar.

Out of the 79 products from the 47 manufacturers to be endorsed and promoted by the government include 17 from the Split-Dalmatia County from the islands of Vis, Hvar, Brac and Solta, 10 from the Dubrovnik-Neretva County from Korcula, Lastovo and Peljesac, 3 from Sibenik-Knin County, 5 from Zadar County from Pag and Dugi Otok, and 12 from the islands of Rab, Krk and Cres in the northern Adriatic.

From 2007 when the government initiative kicked off, there have been 121 island manufacturers (334 products) from 19 islands given the Croatian Island Product quality label. Wine, rakija, olive oil, cheese, lavender products, fish, jams and honey, are just some of the island products to be given the endorsement.
