Description

Description: 

This Armenian company was established in 2008 and is producing natural poly-floral honey, made from carefully selected hives, that are rich and aromatic unsurpassed in flavor. This Armenian honey is produced from the lake Sevan mountains bursting wildflowers, which neither man, nor machine, nor chemicals has touched.
The main source of the honey is the various vivid flowers found in the region, that are containing numerous medicinal and beneficial properties. The production is free from antibiotics, pesticides and heavy metals and corresponds to Armenian and Eurasian Customs Union sanitary laws. The company's production is organic. Housing and movable cabins for squeezing of honey are provided with electricity, water, and other hygiene items and household items (kitchen utensils, disinfectants, etc.) Typically, bee colonies are located 5 km away from residential areas, factories, and highways. The distances from landfills and airports are also taken into account. The farm has a tendency of growth: up to a thousand bee colonies. The annual capacity of this company is 20-22 tones, which can be increased in the case of demand. The company offers honey in a bulk (in big jars). The production volumes depend on individual orders and the honey can be packed depending on the client’s offer.
The whole production process starting from the beekeeping to the honey production and packaging is done following all hygiene rules. The company is well equipped and realizes all production processes by own technical capabilities.
The company sells its products in the local market (supermarkets, specialized stores), as well as exports to Russia. Now the company is interested in establishing contacts with partners located in foreign countries in the framework of distribution services agreement and commercial agency agreement in order to obtain a bigger market share and expand their sales.
