Ultra Premium Croatian Olive Oil from Dalmatia
70% of imported olive oils are rancid and adulterated with cheaper refined oils, such as soybean oil, peanut oil and canola oil.
Not ours. My family's extra virgin olive oil is the real deal.
In Croatia, the country's small coastal villages produce just 4,000 metric tons of olive oil per year. That's less than 1% of what Spain makes, and just 0.1% of the world's total olive oil supply.
That means every drop of olive oil we press is very special. In fact, Selo Olive Oil is pressed in small batches, just thousands of liters per year.
That said, my family always makes enough for our friends.
Our unique Oblica varietals, preserved from the time of Roman Dalmatia, are hand-picked and cold pressed in November at the annual village harvest, in our little selo near Zadar.
We would love it if you tried some. Živili!

Our extra virgin olive oil is harvested and first cold-pressed in Croatia at very low temperatures using the gentlest methods. This painstaking care rewards us with a superb natural olive olive with unusually high polyphenols content, which are responsible for its health benefits.
Why Croatian olive oil?
Olives have been cultivated on the Dalmatian coast of Croatia for more than 3,500 years. While industrial seed oils such as soybean and canola oil are out there getting all the glory, the mighty olive oil has quietly been the humble household staple along the Mediterranean for over six thousand years. Why? For one thing, olive oil tastes awesome. Olives are super healthy, and they’re also environmentally sustainable. They grow virtually all over the Mediterranean in abundance—easily, and require little water.
Time-honored values, historic craftsmanship, and some of the oldest wisdom in the world of extra virgin olive oil have been passed down through the generations to our family. We would like to share that tradition with you. Hand picked, first cold pressed olives from the Dalmatian coast. Loaded with all the best: healthy fats and vitamins, lovable olive oil taste, and a hint of pepper, from our village to your home. Vegan, gluten-free and keto friendly.
Fats used to get a bad rap, but now we know that they’re anything but bad. In fact, the healthy fats in Selo are good for the brain, heart, skin and metabolism.
Just 100g of olive oil contains 14mg of vitamin E and 62mcg of vitamin K which means about 7 tbsp. of olive oil provides 93 percent of the daily recommended allowance, or RDA, of vitamin E and 59 percent of the RDA for vitamin K.
Olive oil—with its naturally occurring Omega 3 fatty acids—boost Selo's power and performance factor, while adding some delicious texture.
