As experienced experts in the pursuit of quality, after a teleological reflection, on the purpose of our work, and ontological, with the will to analyze our goals as a company, we have found in the love in everything we do our best strategy to search the quality and excellence of our honey.
Our goal is the quality
Honey is the natural sweetener. It is a solution of sugars, water, amino acids, enzymes, vitamins, natural antibiotics, a lot of minerals and trace elements.
The quality attributes of our honey are perceived by our senses through its color, structure and texture. In this case, the honey harvested in spring.
Honey is a bacteriostatic food, with high sugar content conditions low water activity. His low pH, and the presence of bactericidal substances among its components, prevents the growth of most microorganisms . The hives where the bees live and develop their work, and therefore the honey, are not contaminated by bacteria that are pathogenic to man.
Process of honey packaging
Honey contamination by pathogenic germs necessarily comes from serious anomalies during the honey´s handling and processing, aspect that we treat with the maximum rigor.
The self-imposed quality control is supervised by the Dr. Santiago Escribano Pintor, member of the Spanish Official College of Agricultural Engineers, in addition to the annual biochemical analyzes by certified food laboratory.
