The guide has proclaimed Istria the best olive-growing destination in the world several times, while Istrian oils account for 15% of all the oils presented in the guide. In 2018, as many as 77 oils from Croatia were included in the guide, of which 2 from Dalmatia and 75 from Istria.

After excellent results achieved in the previous years, in 2018, in the ninth edition of Flos Olei, Istria can boast 15 new olive growers. In the category "Truly Excellent Oils" there are 11 Istrian oils which were awarded 95 to 100 points, and in the category "Excellent Oils" there are as many as 18.
