Pčelarko Omoti is the first Croatian eco wraps for wrapping food. The beeswax wraps are an eco-friendly, reusable alternative to aluminum and cling foil.

Created by Marina Devide, who lives in Vela Luka on the island of Korčula, the wrapping has a shelf life of 12 months.

“They can be used for wrapping bread, cheese, fruit, vegetables, sandwiches. You can cover a bowl or a platter, and also it can be used as a lid for a glass container,” Marina explains, before adding.

“They help cut down on single-use plastic. Being compostable they are zero-waste and help to reduce plastic pollution towards a more sustainable life. With no toxic ingredients, they wrap food in an organic way and prolong the life of food.”

Marina started making her wraps after being introduced to beeswax wraps by a friend from Australia.

“I was so impressed that I wanted to buy Croatian wraps but I could not find them anywhere so I decided to make them myself.”

So far the reaction to her product has been positive.

“Customer reactions have been are amazing. They are so impressed with them like I was the first time I used the Australian ones. We get so many messages from satisfied customers about their use in the kitchen and how they have helped them with the freshness of food,” Marina says.
