Our philosophy consists in producing and packaging honey of high nutritional value. Our honeys bear unique organoleptic characteristics, which are directly connected to the special terroir and the exceptional flora of Crete. Our honeys are carefully harvested and packaged to retain all their natural characteristics and nutritional benefits.
Our apiary center is located in the village of Arkalohori, in the surroundings of Heraklion on the island of Crete. Our family tradition in bee-keeping dates back to 1920. Today our team combines scientific knowledge with the family tradition to offer a range of exclusive honeys. The production and packaging procedures have received the IFS (International Food Standards) Certificate for the products' quality and safety by the TUV Nord Organization. Moreover, we have established strict product controls and we make thorough analyses to ensure product naturalness, including water content analysis, conductivity, diastase pollen analysis, HMF-analysis, checks for lack of pesticides residues.
