Our company recognizes the “Good from Montenegro” mark, awarded by the Chamber of Commerce of Montenegro in April 2022, as a visual identification dedicated to local and national products of the excellent quality, which ultimate goal is promotion both on the domestic and international markets. Barsko zlato® has been the long-time bearer of “Made in Montenegro” trademark, and therefore our team believes that enriching Barsko zlato® etiquette with the “Good from Montenegro” mark will further influence the recognition of our olive oil, but also compete with imported olive oils present on the domestic market more significantly, as well as strengthen the path to the export of our high quality product. Barsko zlato® is the ambassador of Montenegro, while Barska uljara Ltd. continuously works on preservation of traditional values, while simultaneously following the world trends and standards in production technology.


The production premises of Barska uljara Ltd. are equipped with by two 2-phase olive processing lines that use the mechanical process of cold olive oil extraction. Both production lines are made by renowned Florentine manufacturer MORI-TEM, having the processing capacity of 250 kg/h and 500 kg/h, respectively. Furthermore, both of the production lines are reserved for the processing of hand-picked olive fruit in the period of optimal maturity. The olive processing line with a capacity of 250 kg/h is equipped with two vertical chambers, i.e. two vertical vacuum malaxers; thus preventing the entrance of the oxygen and possible spoilage of both organoleptic and chemical characteristics of olive oil caused by the oxidation process.

Barsko zlato® olive oil packaging plant has also been modernized during the last few years, by purchasing an automatic filler, capper and labeler with the packaging capacity of more than 500 bottles per hour, produced by well-known Italian manufacturer CanelliTech. The olive oil storage capacity at the Barska uljara Ltd. is approximately 160 tons settled in dozens of surface stainless steel tanks with a total capacity of cca 100 tons, as well as underground stainless steel tanks, coated also with the stainless steel, with a capacity of cca 60 tons. Therefore, our extra virgin olive oil may be stored in a professional and safe way, remote from the causes of possible organoleptic and chemical degradation causes.

According to the professional opinion coming from the competent national institutions and advisory services, “Barska uljara” Ltd. is the most professional factory for the production of olive oil in Montenegro. Contributing to this fact is that, for the first time in our country, one olive oil production plant is equipped with an OxiTester laboratory device, designed by renowned Italian producer FoodLab, which serves for internal and continuous qualitative chemical control of extra virgin and virgin olive oil.
