Greece has a long history of bee-keeping and there are more beehives per acre in Greece than any other country in Europe, so it comes as no surprise that Greek honey is considered one of the best in the world.
The wide biodiversity of flora combined with the Aegean summer sun is what helps produce this unique golden nectar.
Honey is the first traditional sweetener used by Greeks since antiquity. In fact, honey along with olives and grapes formed the beginnings of Greek gastronomy. Greek honey is one of the most nutritional, natural foods, filled with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Honey contains anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and anti-fungal substances and has also been used for centuries as a treatment for sore throats and coughs, minor burns, cuts, and other bacterial infections.
Greek kinds of honey are richer in aromatic substances, compared to honey produced in other countries; they have less humidity, which means they are denser and richer.
All these facts combined can explain why Greek honey has a top position in the world market.
