Product History
References of honey can be found in ancient times, where it seemed to hold a special place in daily diet. Ancient Greeks believed that honey was the food of the Gods of Olympus (Nectar of the Gods). According to Greek mythology, Zeus was brought up with honey, by nymph Melissa at Diktaion Andron cave. Also, during the Byzantine period, honey was one of the main parts of the diet in monasteries. Today, the world-acclaimed Mediterranean Diet and particularly the Cretan Diet consider honey to be the main and healthiest sweetener. A symbol of fertility and well-being, the nutritional value of honey is undeniably great. Honey contains simple sugars which are directly absorbed by the body, making it a quick source of energy. It also contains vitamins and precious micronutrients.

Cyclades

The Cyclades constitute the most famous group of islands of the Aegean Sea. The blue sea and the white-washed Cycladic houses, the beaches, the steep rocks, the volcanic soil, the naked landscapes, the bays adorned with fishing-boats with their fishermen often seen mending their nets after a hefty catch. Then there are the traditional island songs which invite you to dance to their characteristic rhythm, the ‘screaming’ seagulls overhead and other waterfowl, the archaeological sites, the beautifully decorated terraces and stone walls. The visitor is awe-struck by the magical sunsets, the vineyards and the olive trees which all together compose the austere, simple and at the same time breathtaking Cycladic scenery. The history of the Cycladic islands dates back to the Prehistoric era. The Proto- Cycladic Civilization was developed in the 3rd millennium BC along with the Proto-Minoan Civilization in Crete and the Proto-Hellenic Civilization in mainland Greece. Since ancient times, the Cycladic islands formed a channel for the expansion of trade and culture. The Cycladic islands are: Amorgos, Anafi, Andros, Antiparos, Delos, Donousa, Iraklia, Thirasia, Ios, Kea, Kimolos, Koyfonisia, Kythnos, Milos, Mykonos, Naxos, Paros, Santorini, Serifos, Sikinos, Sifnos, Syros, Schoinoysa, Tinos and Folegandros.
