Stella Mediterranea is a family-owned company whose story began in 2002 on the island of Mljet, following a long tradition of growing Mediterranean fruits in the Polić family. Using home-grown fruits, respecting traditional Dalmatian recipes while smartly enriching them by introducing modern trends in food preparation, with their passion for tradition, Melita and Andrija Polić took a real adventure. The finest Dalmatian delicacies were born and launched to the market under the brand Stella Croatica!
Today, the company Stella Mediterranea Ltd, headquartered in Klis, Croatia, is a recognised Croatian producer of high quality delicatessen products - traditional Mediterranean (Dalmatian) delicacies.
We have a team of experts and with the cooperation with Croatian scientific institutions we wish to provide our customers with delicious, authentic and completely natural Mediterranean gourmet products and food supplements.
Our products are still prepared in the old-fashioned way – handmade – complying at the same time with modern food regulations and standards. HACCP and ISO quality standards are implemented in the production, while the whole business complies with regulations of the European Union. Our production respects the norms of HALAL standards and we are proud to be the first Croatian company to receive the HALAL certificate of quality control.
Currently we have three product branches:
- Stella Croatica - production of premium quality extra virgin olive oils, aromatic oils, olives and tapenades, traditional sweets and healthy snacks, delicious jams and more (http://www.stella-croatica.hr/index.php/en/).
- Stella Bio – production of premium quality jams (plum, dry fig and ginger, orange, orange with ginger) which have more than 95% of organic ingredients (http://www.stella-bio.hr/proizvodi-svi/proizvodi).
- Herba Croatica – production of premium food supplements through a process of lyophilisation (dehydration process by a combination freeze – drying and high pressure) which helps us to safely store biologically active components from plant sources and incorporate them into carefully designed formulas. All of the products have the so-called Mediterranean factor (MF©) - local plant extract which our experts created with the help of Croatian scientific institutions (http://www.herba.hr/)
