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.

The prefecture is divided into five provinces (Apokoronas, Kissamos, Kydonia, Selino, and Sfakia). Its capital, Chania, is a picturesque spellbinding city. The prefecture’s terrain is mostly mountainous as most of its surface is covered by the spectacular, awe-inspiring White Mountains which captivate visitors with their pristine beauty, snow-capped peaks, and spellbinding vistas.The entire prefecture Chania county is characterized by a rich variety of landscapes - inaccessible canyons, cliffs, caves, mountains and forests of exceptional natural beauty, streams and inviting beaches with crystal clear water.

Many have been the scientists, philosophers, poets, and artists who, drawn by the city’s magical ambiance at one time or another, turned it into a cultural hub.

Just like the rest of Crete, Chania is inextricably linked to the celebrated Mediterranean Diet. It is a blessed, practically autonomous, land with a vast diversity in its flora and fauna. It is that very diversity which, extending its bounty to Chania, has turned into the very model of the Cretan diet.

The key elements of the Cretan diet are extra virgin olive oil, wild greens, vegetables, legumes, fish, meat, wine, and tsikoudia. To that, a bewildering variety of artisanal cheeses such as Cretan graviera yellow cheese, anthotyro soft white cheese, and mizithra are added.
