Website : www.chania-honey.gr
Melopeion Fylladitakis is a Cretan family business of beekeeping and production of organic thyme honey for the last 50 years. The business has a strong presence in its sector, thanks to consistently distributing products of premium quality to the market. The uncompromised quality of the products over time, is based upon the primary raw material of our blessed land and the commitment of the producers to efficiently capitalize upon the wisdom of tradition together with today’s know-how.
Pavlos Fylladitakis, 2nd generation beekeeper, was brought up with this uncompromised philosophy and while steering the wheel of the family business, he aims to continue to produce thyme honey of premium quality, by only applying traditional methods of production.
The delicious taste and valuable nutrients of our organic, thyme and heather honey owe their qualities to geomorphological characteristics of the island, the endemic flora and fauna, the absence of intense cultivation as well to our strong will to safeguard the secrets of the traditional beekeeping.
The Cretan honey is widely known for its purity and its high nutritional value, due to the Cretan flora which can support organic cultivations. It is one of the few areas with thyme and pine trees where intense cultivation does not take place. Melopeion Fylladitakis owns an exemplary, private, production workshop in Kakodiki of the Kantanos – Selino province in the Chania prefecture. The area is found in the southwest of the prefecture and is very rich in flora thanks to the crystal waters of Kakodiki river, unspoiled by tourist and residential development and far away from cultivation and pesticides.
Respectively, our over 1.000 beehives are located dispersed across Crete and in selected areas where the conditions are checked and ideal for the bees to collect pure pollen and work undisturbed within the beehives. With the wisdom of traditional production and today’s know-how, the producer is getting prepared for the harvest during the right time periods when the honey fully possesses all of its nutrients.
