Honey

Our honey is distinguished by its naturalness and quality, and the careful handling of nature by our small-scale but professionally organized beekeepers on which the bees (and the honey) depend on through the cooperative that supplies us.

Our honey comes from biological beekeepers and is distinguished by naturalness and quality, and the careful handling of nature on which the bees (and the honey) depend.

We currently have about 200.000 beehives from thousands of beekeepers that supply us. About 20% of the honey is destined for the home market at a local price. The rest is exported, mainly to Europe.
In addition to honey, we also produce 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 monitor the quality of our honey, that is again subjected to controls by us as the importer and by the government.

Free from toxins
All our honey is 100% guaranteed free of toxins, which is guaranteed since no agricultural poisons are used in the far surroundings. The farmers around us have learned how to work without poison. No agricultural poisons / pesticides come into contact with our honey.

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 go to the fields 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 long, between the crops, to poison the “weeds”. However, the bees need these (poisoned) herbs for the honey. You can understand: organic honey cannot be produced in your area. Unfortunately, this is a fact of life for most of the world, where farmers have been made addicted to poisons (sometimes due to genetic modification and contracts, they simply cannot farm without poisons). There is no agricultural poison in the far surrounding of our fields, in benefit of the nature and our beekeepers.

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 our 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.
