Croatian Island Products
Tradition and originality for a new quality

In addition to nice memories, visitors to Kvarner can take some quality products of the region home with them. Most of these products you can try for yourself during your stay on Kvarner, but here we would like to point out those products bearing the new Croatian Island Product label. This label is issued by the Croatian Ministry of the Sea, Transport and Infrastructure to indicate the products' quality and originality.

The list of 57 quality island products includes seven products from the Kvarner region. Produces of the island of Krk are: Žlahtina wine by Frajona d.o.o., A.S. Prior d.o.o. Sirana Arabeska goat cheese, Golden Vrbnik Žlahtina wine by the Vrbnik agricultural cooperative, and Žlahtina Toljanić wine by the Gospoja agricultural cooperative. On the island of Cres, the label Croatian Island Product was given to the products made of Cres wool by the RUTA – Group for a better life quality on the island of Cres. Products of the island of Rab are the Lavender Oil and Lavender Dried Flower by the La Barbara agricultural trade, and the Rab Cake/muštaćoni by the Vilma confectionery.  

The Croatian Island Product project is aimed at stimulating the development of island manufacture and improving the quality of island products that are made by respecting the island tradition. The project was started in 2007 by the Croatian Ministry of the Sea, Transport and Infrastructure, when this label was given to 22 Croatian products.
