CRETAN APIARY CENTER MELIGYRIS Our apiary center is located in the village Arkalohori, in the surroundings of Heraklion on the island of Crete. Our family tradition in bee-keeping dates back to 1920. Today our team combines scientific knowledge with the family tradition to offer a range of exclusive honeys. In order to guarantee the high quality of our products, production and packaging are certified by TUV NORD for compliance with the food safety practices IFS (International Food Standard). Moreover, we have established strict product controls and thorough analyses to ensure that a quality product reaches the final consumer.

OUR PHILOSOPHY Our philosophy consists in producing and packaging honey of high nutritional value. Our honeys bear unique organoleptic characteristics, which are directly connected to the special terroir and the exceptional flora of Crete. Our honeys are carefully harvested and packaged to retain all their natural characteristics and nutritional benefits.
Meligyris products can be found in all airports in Greece (duty free shops), in some of the best Delicatessen of Greece , Europe and the U.S.A., as well as in selected high-level hotels.
