Kocbek Oil Mill

Kocbek Oil Mill - Presentation

When our grandfather Alojz Kocbek started working in milling and later in 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.

Tour of the oil mill

A first-class experience of getting to know the Pomurje region is offered by a guided tour of the Kocbek oil mill, where you can get to know the traditional way of making pumpkin seed oil, which has been preserved since 1929.

The family tradition of the oil mill still retains the original touch of nostalgia, combined in good quality.

We accept groups from Monday to Saturday in the morning

from 1 January to 30 June and from 20 August to 24 December.

Reservation required by phone: +386 (0)2 568 9026 or at

Since grandfather Alojz drew the right path, even today we continue the tradition that allows us to make the best products we can make. We still use the same mill as in 1929 and still process the oil in the same way as then. And we will keep that forever.

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.
