Uje and Brachia are brands representing the best extra virgin olive oils and exclusive Croatian culinary delicacies. Croatia's best manufacturers and the finest ingredients brought together to create high-quality hand-made products in unique packaging.
Uje was founded 15 years ago on island Brač, by its conceptual founder, former journalist Leopold Botteri. The idea was to produce the first premium Dalmatian extra virgin olive oil and promote top Croatian extra virgin olive oils.
Leopold's great entrepreneurial idea led him to open sister companies such as Brachia, San Canzian, Aroma Mediterranea and Nona that today produce various delicacies and natural cosmetics, not just extra virgin olive oil.
Hopefully, on your future visits to Croatia, you can visit one of Uje's many oleotheques and their fantastic restaurant in Split, as well as their stunning hotel San Canzian.
Brachia is a sister brand of Uje, the first Croatian oleotheque. Brachia became one of the best known and most recognisable Croatian olive oil brands.
They say that Antenor, the famous Trojan warrior, sailed to an island that he named Brachia (Brač) after his home town of Ambrachia in Greece. He brought with him Silenus, the Winegrower who, according to legend, planted an olive sapling on the island. This olive found fertile soil on the barren grounds of Brač and sustained generations of islanders. Nowadays, its fertile soil provides us with the pleasure of enjoying original products from the island of Brač.
With exceptional pride, at marqt.no we offer a full Brachia product line - extra virgin olive oils made from the awarded olive variety named Oblica.
