The Kocbek Oil Mill

The history of the Kocbek Oil Mill dates back to 1929 ...

… when Alojz Kocbek bought the estate and started the mill business, and later also the oil-making business. He passed his knowledge and experience from generation to generation and each added something of their own. Experience and market demands are the reason, why today we can offer you the most pure and natural oils from carefully selected seeds grown on fields of yet untouched nature. You find us at Stara Gora, next to the main road, which leads you in the direction of Gornja Radgona — Radenci — Kapela – Sveti Jurij ob Šcavnici. This is the NE part of Slovenia, the Šcavniška valley in the heart of the wine-bearing Slovenske Gorice hills, near Blaguško Lake.

Knowledge and experience were first passed down to their son Anton, who later turned everything over to his son Gorazd, who now represents the third generation in the Kocbek family. Gorazd wishes to continue the family tradition and in that way preserve the strong family name and reputation and the highest quality. In 1994, we were the first to produce cold-pressed oils, where the seeds are untreated (ground, roasted and pressed), but rather the oil is squeezed from the seeds with a special press. The maximum temperature in this procedure is 40° C and that is why we get completely natural oil, which stays identical to the seed in its fragrance, color and flavor. These oils are mild and preserve all the vitamins and minerals, which are important for our body.
