Kocbek Oil Mill History

When our grandfather Alojz Kocbek started working in milling and oil production in 1929, he did not think that his beginnings would grow into a family business that would be recognized globally for products of the highest quality.

In the heart of Slovenske gorice, Slovenia more precisely in Stara Gora near Sveti Jurij ob Ščavnici, there is an old oil mill, where the third generation of Kocbek’s are running the production of quality pumpkin seed oil. Alojz and his wife Antonija passed on their knowledge and experience to their son Anton, who in turn passed it on to his descendant Gorazd. As the third generation, the latter only enriched the pumpkin seed oil and expanded the word to the world where it is increasingly sought after today. Today, the products of the Kocbek oil mill are recognizable both in its origin country Slovenia and throughout the world and enrich the most prestigious dishes for gourmets from Dubai to Japan and America.

Pumpkins

Pumpkins and their seeds, which we use to make our pumpkin seed oil, ripen in pristine nature. They are blessed with rich soil, fresh air and clean water.

Cold-pressed

Oil produced by the cold pressing process is lighter in color, not as dense, has a very delicate smell and a mild taste - as if eating raw pumpkin seeds. At the Kocbek oil mill, we were the first to start making the cold pressed pumpkin oil back in 1994.

Pumpkin seeds

For our products - from chocolate to pumpkin seed oil - we use only carefully selected seeds from local growers. The seeds are hand picked to ensure at least 98% purity of the pumpkin seeds.

Hot-pressed

Traditional production process. The hot-pressing process gives the oil its characteristic dark color and density. It also has a rich aroma and an intense taste of typical pumpkin seed oil.

More than just pumpkin seed oil

We are passionate in what we do and our goal is simple.

A precious gift of nature, full of minerals and vitamins, which is also called the “fountain of youth” due to its exceptional ingredients.

Pumpkin seed oil has enticing smells and a pleasant deep taste with gentle undertones. It is also completely natural and can have positive effects on the body and well-being.

Alojz and Antonija passed on their knowledge and experience to their son Anton, who in turn passed it on to his son Gorazd, who today represents the third generation in the KOCBEK family. Gorazd wants to continue the tradition of his grandfather and father and thus maintain a good name and top quality.
