Cuban honey is distinguished by its naturalness and quality, and the careful handling of nature by the small-scale but professionally organized Cuban beekeepers on which the bees (and the honey) depend on through the Apicuba cooperative.
The Apisun honey comes from Cuban beekeepers and is distinguished by naturalness and quality, and the careful handling of nature on which the bees (and the honey) depend.
Apisun currently has about 200,000 beehives from thousands of beekeepers. About 20% of the honey is destined for the home market at a local price. The rest is exported, mainly to Europe and Latin America.
In addition to honey, Apicuba also produces royal jelly, pollen and the natural healing remedy Propolis.
The entire apiculture chain is monitored by the Animal Health Directorate of the Ministry of Agriculture, the Ministry of Health and the National Bureau for Standardization. In addition, European organizations in Cuba monitor the quality of the honey and the honey in Europe is again subjected to controls by the importer and the government.
Free from toxins
Apicuba honey is 100% guaranteed free of toxins, which is guaranteed since no agricultural poisons are used in Cuba. The Cubans have learned how to burp without poison. No agricultural poisons / pesticides enter the country.
Only organic if at least 10 km non-toxic
Honey can only be organic if agricultural poison is never used within a radius of 10 kilometers, because that’s how far bees fly. If you ever cycle outside you will probably see a field sprayed to death, where a farmer has cleared his land of “weeds” with agricultural poison. Or you can see the poison tractor driving all season, between the crops, to poison the “weeds”. However, these (poisoned) herbs need the bees for the honey. You understand: organic honey cannot be produced in your area. Unfortunately, this is true for most of the world, where farmers have been made addicted to poisons (sometimes due to genetic modification and contracts they cannot live without poisons). There is no agricultural poison in Cuba, so organic beekeeping can be anywhere on the island.
Healthy taste sensation
The nectar of the flowers on which the bee flies (the Romerillo, a medicinal plant, the Leñatero, Campanillas Blanca and Morada, Soplillo, Almendro) not only gives Cuban honey its specific taste, color and aroma, but also a high mineral content. , vitamins and a wide variety of phenolic compounds, peptides, organic acids and enzymes. That is why it is not only sweet and delicious, but also has important properties: it is an antioxidant, it is stimulating, healing, antiseptic, laxative, diuretic and bactericidal.
