Pine honey is honey of high nutritional value and this is mainly due to the large number of different substances present in its composition. Among these substances are the minerals and trace elements (calcium, magnesium, zinc, iron, copper, etc.), which are in high concentrations in Greek pine honey.

Thereafter, the quantities of honey and other products are transferred to standard facilities where, without the removal of ingredients or the addition of extraneous substances, without heat treatment, destroying their natural enzymes, their bacteriostatic property and vitamins, and without further interventions, blended, packaged according to the latest hygiene and safety standards to maintain their natural characteristics, nutritional qualities and excellent quality unaltered. Our honey, in every batch, is subject to rigorous laboratory tests to avoid the presence of antibiotics and other unsuitable substances.
