Where is Vegeta produced?

VegetaThe food seasoning Vegeta is one of the wildely known products of the Croatian Podravka company. Its recipe was created by Zlata Bartl in 1958. The mixture is available in several varieties today: piquant, Mediterranean etc.

The history of Podravka stretches back to 1934 when the Wolf brothers, Marijan and Matija Wolf established a fruit processing plant in Koprivnica. The plant was nationalized in 1947 and renamed Podravka. The first resounding success was the powder soups at the end of the 1950s and this success was crowned by the introduction of Vegeta in 1959. Its recipe has been attempted to reproduce more than 50 times since then. Vegeta gained an unprecedented popularity in Yugoslav kitchens and was firstly exported to Hungary and the USSR. Today it can be found in more than 40 countries’ shops.

From the 1970s Podravka has gradually widened its product selection with baby food (Lino brand), mineral water (Studenac), pudding powders (Dolcela) etc. Its factory in Ludbreg produces cosmetics and drugs.

The company practices significant charity and sponsors several cultural and educational programs and sports events including the ATP tennis tournament in Umag.

At the same time corruption has cast a shadow over the company. The Croatian authorities arrested business executives with the charge of fraud, and investigation reached as far as deputy Prime Minister Damir Polančec who has resigned shortly.
