In 1864 Josip Krstulovć family founded the oilery in a small town of Skrip on the island Brac.
By the early 20th century Kruno and Mandica Krstulović have upgraded the oilery by buying the new ''Thomas Holt'' olive press
from Trieste. The family continued to process the olive oil until the 1963 when the oilery stoped working due to introduction of new technologies (hydraulic press).
In  2013 Kruno Cukrov (grandson of Kruno Krstulović) and his family took the chalange of restoration the old oilery and by July 2013 the oilery become Musuem of olive oil in Skrip and it is open for public as historical and cultural monument of history of making olive oil on the island Brac.

The Cukrov family continues the family tradition of producing olive oil as a part of their family business, this time on modern maschines, for which it was awarded bronze medal for extra virgin olive oil at the Oblica fest 2014 in Postira.
