Honey is the central ingredient for all cretamel products. Cretan honey (“meli” in Greek)
Honey is a natural healthy food with great nutritional value and the major sweetener component of the Mediterranean diet. The Greek and especially Cretan honey are unique. The individuality of the Greek terrain, the rare variation of herbs, trees, and shrubs (more than 2000 varieties), as well as the long summer, shaped an ideal environment to produce high-quality honey.
Honey cultivation and production are closely related to the 4.000+ years of Cretan history. The famous Gold Bee pendant – a masterpiece of Minoan art – representing two bees storing away honey in a honeycomb, is dated back to 1800-1700 BC.
