A background story
Angelos and Vasia grew up in Bavaria, close to nature and although they started for other directions, eventually, as they say, “the bees chose them”. They returned to Corfu, and when the honey they produced as a family for personal use, began to expand from the circle of acquaintances and friends, they realized through the love of the people and the positive feedback they received, that they were holding in their hands a product that had all the specifications to turn into a successful business.
Always guided by quality, Vasia and Angelos focused on the production of honey and derivatives and from 2016 began to work systematically, add products to their production and distribute their goodies in various parts of the island and beyond. They also export their products to foreign countries, such as Germany and Ireland.
