Organic Heather Honey from Creta from family production Fylladitakis
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.
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 touristic and residential development and far away from cultivations 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 nutrient. Remaining loyal to the traditional methods of production, there are investments every year in research and further development of the production, via regular qualitative and quantitative controls, in order to get a final product which is pure, organic and extremely tasty.

Honey constitutes one of the basic ingredients (category super food) of the internationally acclaimed, Cretan nutrition. It is rich in vitamins and trace elements, it concentrates many nutrients and is a fast source of energy for the body. Heather honey is an intensely aromatic honey, sweet and caramelised with salty, malty and bitter notes. Color may vary, brown and reddish to dark amber. Thanks to its premium quality, it boosts the body and helps maintaining the immune system, in good condition.
It crystallises within a period of 6 to 18 months since its production, depending upon its quality and the conditions under which it is being preserved. In Greece, heather honey is considered the best category of pure honey and is has a high demand around the world.
