Our honey is packaged in glass jars with metal lids and easily removable labels so that the jar can be reused or recycled. The cardboard box containing our honey is from FSC certified paper, meaning it comes from responsibly managed forests, controlled sources, recycled materials, or a combination of these and can also be recycled. We are constantly seeking out new ways to improve our packaging, so if you have any recommendations, email us at info@eftychiabio.gr

Honey

Our honey is pure, raw, and certified organic by TUV – AUSTRIA HELLAS for the Control & Certification of Organic Products. We implement only natural, organic practices without the use of any harmful pesticides, and we place our beehives in remote areas far from any source of pollution. You can read more about our beekeeping practices here.

We are proud to use only organic honey from our beehives located in remote, virgin areas across the country. We don’t buy honey from other beekeepers and that’s why we do not produce many different types of honey and our honey production capacity can’t always match the demand of our customers. In that way we ensure the best quality and most health and nutrition benefits for our customers, while also respecting and protecting bees, our most precious pollinators. You can read more about our beekeeping practices here.

Honey should be stored in a dry place at room temperature, away from direct sunlight, with the jar or lid securely sealed. Keep honey stored in similar conditions after opening.

Real raw, organic honey will eventually crystallize, but in some cases this procedure might last for years. That doesn’t mean of course that all honeys that crystallize are pure and vice versa. Only certified laboratories can check if your honey is real and pure. Should you wish to return it to liquid stage, place jar in warm water (bain-marie) up to 45º C and stir gently.

According to Greek and international food laws it is mandatory to mention a best before date or expiry date on the label of all packed foods. Therefore, we display “best before” dates on all our honeys, but our products can be consumed even after this date. However, after the best before date or even earlier, the honey will change its properties in terms of colour, aroma, texture etc. This change of properties like darkening of colour or crystallisation does not make the honey unsafe in any way.

It is generally not recommended to give honey to infants under 12 months old. Please consult your pediatrician.
