"This is the ultimate, ultimate list of my Favorite Things," says Oprah. Why? Because no matter who's on your holiday list, you'll find everything from the whimsical stocking stuffer to the over-the-top indulgence.
"Derived from the sap of Grecian fir trees, this rare, raw organic honey is beyond luscious. The glamorous packaging will make it a much-appreciated holiday hostess gift."—Oprah
Our award-winning Eulogia Organic Greek Fir honey is harvested in the Mainalo mountain region of Greece. Unlike traditional honey which is created when bees collect nectar from flowers, our fir honey is created from the honeydew left behind by aphids that extract and feed on the sap of the fir tree. Much care is needed not only to harvest the honey, but for the bees themselves in order to maintain a balance within this unique ecosystem found nowhere else.
This rare, raw honey is a product of organic farming and the only honey from Greece with a Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) distinction from the European Union for its authenticity and uniqueness.
Its exclusivity, thick caramel-like texture and pearlescent luster make this a world-class honey bursting with extraordinary flavor and aroma, unlike any other honey.
We are honored and very proud to announce that our limited edition Organic Greek Fir Honey was selected by the Specialty Food Association as a sofi™ Award silver finalist! Our Organic Greek Fir honey was nominated for the category of “Outstanding Honey, Jam, Preserve or Nut Butter” and is in the running to possibly capture a Gold award and best in category this July.
Every year the Specialty Food association holds it’s annual red carpet event celebrating the “Best of the best” in 35 different food categories such as Condiments, Cookies, Appetizer, Cheese, Meat, Snacks and Packaging to mention just a few. The sofi™ Award is the highest honor that can be bestowed upon a food producer within the specialty food industry; simply being recognized and nominated within the respective honey category was fantastic news for us especially on the heels of also recently winning a gold medal at the BiolMiel International Organic Honey Competition.
We’re looking forward to over 200 food experts from various backgrounds and industries to sample and vote on our Organic Fir Honey when the show and award ceremony is in New York City from June 30 to July 2, 2013. The announcement and ceremony will be Monday July, 1 2013 and will be hosted by the internationally acclaimed Chef Marcus Samuelsson.
We’re all very excited to be taking part in the Summer Food Show and award ceremony. All of our current products will be on display and available to sample at Booth 5353. The show is closed off from the public, however if you’re in the industry and will be attending please stop by and see us. Congratulations and best of luck to all the other fellow 2013 nominees and sofi silver finalists…we’ll see you all on the red carpet this July!
