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.

ML Valsamo

ML Valsamo' was created by a group of friends with common memories and dreams. Having spent all our childhood summers in the Greek countryside, closely tied to our land and the aromas of the Greek earth, we wanted to share what we loved most, through pure products and tastes of our homeland. And so we started our journey. Small local producers, people who love the fruits of Greek nature and know how to harvest and process them with respect as per local traditions, so as to create small gastronomic wonders, became our fellow workers. To be precise, these people became our friends, our family. All of our products are hand picked and we have personally tasted and approved them based on their high quality and uniqueness, constantly researching the market for new delicacies. In Greece we use the word Valsamo to metaphorically describe anything soothing, healing and comforting; a therapeutic remedy for the body and soul. This is exactly what our products achieve. Their discreet flavors act therapeutically, satisfying all of our senses. A valsamo anyone can have in his kitchen and on his table; a small journey of flavors and aromas anyone can relish when opening one of our jars.

Arcadia

Arcadia is located in the middle of the Peloponnese, and constitutes one of the most interesting regions of Greece, thanks to its significance in mythology, archaeological treasures and monuments, glorious history and its unique natural beauty. According to Greek mythology, many ancient gods were born in Arkadia. The most important of all, was Panas, the God of music and the countryside. Τhe literary genre of pastoral poetry was developed in Arkadia and that's where the famous Arcadian idealism for life flourished, exalting the love for nature, music, spiritual and physical relaxation and faith in human values. Its wild mountains, impetuous rivers, lakes, wetlands, wildflowers, the myriad of herbs, cultivated land, the mountainous grazing land, the majestic mountainous traditional settlements, and the clear blue sea. All these colour combinations, pictures and contrasts compose the magic of the Arkadian landscape.
