OPG Damir Mesarić is based in Belica in Međimurje County.
We have been operating for more than 30 years, we cultivate 44 ha of land, and our primary production is potatoes. The entire process from processing, planting, irrigation, protection, removal of storage in controlled conditions to packaging is carried out with the latest technology. For this production, we have GLOBALG.A.P. certificate and license for production and packaging under the brand name “Međimurski kalamper”.
In addition to the Croatian potato market, we also export Hungary, Slovenia, Montenegro, Bulgaria and Romania. Next year, the construction of a new warehouse for potatoes with 6 more producers is planned with the help of Measure 4.1.1. investments in potato storage capacity.
We also produce very rare blue potatoes, Hokkaido, butternut and zucchini kabocha.
We have been growing pumpkins for several years to produce pumpkin seed oil. Pumpkin seed oil is processed by the process of roasting pumpkin seeds without adding other oils (so-called hot pressing).
We place it on the market under the name Međimurje bone oil Premium. We participate in the exhibitions of pumpkin oil in Northwestern Croatia and the International Exhibition of Pumpkin Seeds ALPE-ADRIA, wherein 2018. received a bronze medal for quality.
Our family is a member of the Short Supply Chain “Best of Međimurje” where the quality of our oil is also recognized and among the selected products is our pumpkin oil which bears the brand “Best of Međimurje”.
This year we also received the “Blue Checker” label from the City of Zagreb.
