Canarian honeys are known worldwide for their outstanding quality. They are produced from plants typical of the archipelago, sometimes endemic and threatened. Their production is fully sustainable and helps the conservation of island ecosystems. Our honeys come from certified producers and they are not pasteurized, so they keep intact their properties and extraordinary flavour.
