Everything started back in 2007 when a bee swarm has chosen the family Nikolaou’s backyard tree for its permanent residence. Things have changed since then at their small family ranch. The organic honeybee farm, occupying a salient position, is commonly run by two brothers: Christophoros (professional farmer) and Dimitris (orchestra conductor and composer). Bee-thoven means harmony and respect. A combination of Mother nature’s wisdom ruling the bee-world and music harmony.
Bee-thoven produces certified bee products by independent authorities, respecting the bees and the environment. The company has recently joined International Organic Awards 2020 and has received a Gold award for their Pine Honey, awarded by Organic Newspaper.
The pine (Pinus) honey is not very sweet, due to its low sucrose concentration. Its colour is darker than the usual golden coloured flower honeys, and may vary, depending on the harvesting region and season. For instance, the honey produced during springtime is clearer compared to the one in fall. It owes its high nutritional value to the presence of consisting minerals and nutrients (calcium, magnesium, zinc, Ferrum, copper, etc.)
According to Dimitris Nikolaou, owner and communication manager of Bee-Thoven on his interview.
Do you already export worldwide? If yes, where? If no, what type of importers & distributors are you looking for?
No, not worldwide. Only some individual orders in France and Germany. I would be pleased if a partnership with a reseller emerged or with a retailer.
What is the most unique and qualitative part of your products, different from competitors?
We do not know what kind of honey the other producers have and what quality they have. It does not concern us. We look forward to our own honeys being of the highest quality that this excellent food could have. We think we’ve done it and we’re very proud of it.
When did you start to export your brand worldwide, and what is your development plan for the next years?
Αs ΒEE-thoven we started 3 years ago. We hope that our efforts will eventually be rewarded and in the next 3-5 years, we ‘ll have gained our share of the honey market in Europe.
