The Šolta olive growers are small family farms which individually do not have sufficient quantities of olive oil or financial resources for a more serious market appearance. We have it together. The Association is working to move as many olive growers in Šolta as possible into organic production and the making of olive oil of the highest possible quality. The association will directly and indirectly participates in the marketing of only super premium olive oils. It was at Olive Oil times that we learned about the efforts of a group of experts and olive growers who founded the International Association 3 E (the 3 E’s are Ethics, Excellence and Economics) and are working to promote the Super-premium category.
Superpremium olive oil is a class above extra virgin olive oil. As members of the 3E Association, we consider the "extra virgin" category Compressed and abused without care. The olives of Šolta grow on rocky fields with little fertile land. The use of mechanization is impossible, everything is done with small hand tools. Thus, each of our trees has a "personality", the olive grower talks to it and knows exactly when it needs help and what it needs. The same goes for the harvest: each fruit goes through the hand several times; when it is removed from the tree, when it is collected in baskets, when the leaves and dry twigs are cleaned. Damaged or rotten fruit is immediately removed, leaving only healthy, juicy fruit. The oil obtained from these fruits has no resemblance to the oils sold in the distribution chains and cannot be sold under the same name. Unfortunately,
The Šolta olive oil of the Association "ZLATNA ŠOLTANKA" has won the highest awards at domestic olive manifestations for years. In the last 3 years, "Šoltansko" has broken through to the very top of the best olive oils in the world.
