A high quality product
A product of extraordinary value
Melissi Honey is a wonderful gift of nature.
The Greek countryside is rich in trees, flowers and herbs which are not found anywhere else in the world. It is in this unique landscape, mostly at high altitudes, where our honeycombs are located and where our bees live and produce this entirely natural food, which forms an integral part of the Mediterranean diet.
The quality of honey depends primarily upon the natural environment where the bees live and work. The area should be far away from pollutants and surrounded by a rich and healthy flora. This allows the bees to produce honey with a high nutritional value.
Pure honey contains more than 180 ingredients, such as natural sugars, simple and complex organic acids, amino acids, natural flavorings, enzymes, vitamins and many others. All these render honey an excellent energy source for the human body.
"Melissi” is honey in its purest form, for it includes all the nutrients and flavors of honey as it is collected from the hive, without further processing, blending, addition or removal of any kind of elements.
"Melissi” is bottled according to the latest standards of quality and hygiene as specified by ISO 22000 recommendations.
Along with "conventional” honey, the Melissi series includes several flavors of organic honey certified by the Certification Organization of Organic Products DIO (http://www.dionet.gr/). Organic "Melissi” is monitored through all steps of its development, from the location of the honeycomb until packaging.
Our producers collect Melissi with responsibility and traditional methods and have repeatedly received awards in international competitions.
Note: "Honey Granulation" (or else crystallization) is a natural process observed in pure honey. The speed of the process depends on the honey’s type and origin and by no means does it affect or alter honey's nutritional value. It can be easily reverted back to its initial state if slightly heated in a hot water bath ("Bain – Mari”)
