ORGANIC HONEYCOMBS
The big problem in exercising organic apiculture is the lack of certified organic beeswax in the Greek market. The regulation, at any way, allows the honeycomb creation from conventional wax spallings but chemical analysis of reliable laboratories have found twice the quantities in drug or medicine residues which pass inevitably into the honey. The problem was solved when we succeeded in importing - via the apiculturers’ union MELICHRYSOS - organic honeycombs certified by ECOCERT from New Zealand, a country with high apicultural level as well as environmental sensibility.

VARROA CONTROL
In order to control this bee parasite we use organic drone hives combined with an organic product, which is based on an insect pathogenic fungus, which we import from New Zealand.

DATA LABELLING
As we consider an informed consumer an alley, we write on the label all the necessary data in order to inform him without being obliged to do so by the Hellenic Food Authority. So, even if we are not obliged, we write the place and the time of honey collection and the standardization time. And this is because we want a conscious consumer to know not only what he eats but what he pays for.

WAY OF COLLECTION
In order to collect the propolis and pollen we use stainless, never plastic pollen traps or propolis traps.

PRODUCT STANDARDIZATION
Honey is packaged after it remains in a tank in calm state for twenty days more or less (so that we can collect the honey foam) with no additional filtering or any other processing. Thus, its high nutritional value is preserved.
It goes without saying that the honey tank are INOX and the joints are done with LASER and not with TIK because if not, there is the danger of heavy metals entering from the joints into the honey. Besides, we must make clear that plastic packaging is unsuitable for apicultural product packaging. If we are right or wrong in claiming this, only time will tell.
