About us

Hi! We're Tom and Danica, a foodie-loving couple splitting time between Hvar Island, Croatia, and Vienna, Austria. 

We have an obsession with good, healthy food, and Hvar Gourmet is an extension of that. Our initial project was to bring slowfood, authentic early-harvest olive oil directly from Danica's island of Hvar to the world. We achieved that in 2016 with the help up Kickstarter, which ended up funding our project by 132% of our original goal. 

Our main focus is olive oil (in fact, Danica's family has their own mill, ensuring really top-notch quality stuff), pumpkin-seed oil (central Europe's best kept health secret!), and wild, non-homogenized herbs.
