Fair visitors will have the opportunity to taste extremely rare varieties of honey and bee products at the 13th Greek Festival of Bee Products, which will be held from 2 to 4 December 2022 at the Peace and Friendship Stadium (Στάδιο Ειρήνης και Φιλίας) in Athens.
The aim of the largest beekeeping event in Southeast Europe is to popularize and promote branded Greek honey and bee products. More than 300 small Greek producers (many of them young beekeepers and female beekeepers) will present their products, and unique varieties will be presented to the general public, such as honey with thyme and Cretan pine cones, honey with superfoods (a combination of superfoods with high biological value), honey from Kalymnos, “Anama” honey from Ikaria, “Susura” honey from Halkidiki, carob honey (harupi, carob), honey with anise and fennel, etc.
Rare types of honey (with spirulina, dark chocolate, goji berries, blueberries and mastic, organic varieties, etc.), honey cream, honey spreads (walnut honey, honey praline), honey-based drinks (racomelo and etc.), traditional sweets with honey (pasteles, melekunia, etc.), as well as natural cosmetics made from handmade beekeeping products.
Consumers will have the opportunity to taste pure, high-quality, but also rare honey from the islands (Kalymnos, Ikaria, Furnos, Thassos, Kea, Schinousa, Astypalea, Tinos, Syros, Andros, Paros, Amorgos, Rhodes, Kasos, Kimolos, Karpathos, Kitnos, Lemnos, Samos, Crete), from the mainland (Chalkidiki, Mani, Karpenisi, Suli, Rhodope, Kilkis, Pieria, Preveza, Dodoni), as well as from the Peloponnese (Messenia, Achaia, Laconia, Corinthia, Ilia, Arcadia).
The festival is held under the auspices of the Ministry of Rural Development and Food, and this year’s award-winning region will be the Peloponnese. The fair will be a great incentive for the country’s 30,000 beekeepers, of which about 20,000 are young people under the age of 35.
