6.     ABOUT US

We are a small family farm counting with four members. We are located in the North of Croatia in a small baroque town of Varaždin.

Family business is run by a marital couple, Marin and Ana Bašić. Once upon a time when we were agronomy students and passionate nature lovers, we decided to start the production of pumpkin seed oil in order to familiarize people with this healthy food supplement and ensure that it gains the position at the market which it definitely deserves.

Marin is in charge of processing the seeds and producing oil, while Ana is the marketing wizard. Our youngest family members, Petar and Lucija are still too young to help us with the production, but their curiosity is what motivates us to keep on producing the oil. Our dream is to pass on our heritage to them, the gastronomical heritage that we seasoned with genuine affection.  Nothing could delight us more than being able to offer you an exceptional, natural and healthy product such as Epulo pumpkin seed oil.
