ŽITAK – FINA DLMATA d.o.o. is an island company of Jurić family which follows 300 years old tradition of sponge industry and diving. It protects the environmental values and cherishes the bond between man and submarine world.
Sea sponges that ŽITAK FINA DALMATA d.o.o. offers are picked in the submarine world of the Croatian Adriatic, are treated and made in a workshop on the island of Krapanj and therefore they are the real product of the Croatian island.
The company was founded by Ivan- Roko Jurić, (1956- 2002), and now it is represented by Divna Gašperov- Jurić, the founder’s wife.
