Built by bees directly into this box.
We create natural honeycomb that is soft and spreads like butter on bread.
This beeswax is perfectly edible, healthy and delicious!
Bees wont seal their honey with their wax unless it is perfect. This is nature's strictest standard of honey quality and authenticity!
We discovered a new, less intervening way of working with bees, that allows them to build this entire honeycomb naturally, without the use of chemical substances or any other human intervention. This is a new, patented method of making honeycomb without the supporting wax layer in the middle of the comb. This means our honeycomb is truly unprocessed, a perfect presentation of nature's wonderful creation untouched by human intervention, preserved in the same box bees made it.
Spreads like butter!
Our bees have to stretch the wax in their effort to seal the honey cells at the top of the box. This new process makes the wax so thin that it quickly breaks down in your mouth, it is swallowed as easily as any other food, it is delicious and it is proven to be incredibly healthy! For the first time, you may combine honeycomb with bread and other foods, while maintaining perfect edibility of the dish.
This comb stays naturally sealed in the beeswax no matter the transportation conditions. It is sealed by bees with wax on all inner sides of the box, making the comb so resilient to movement that it can be held upside down and be shaken without breaking the sealed cells. As a result, this honey never came into contact with oxygen and the atmosphere outside the hive. You will be the first to free the honey from the wax, tasting the most authentic, truly unprocessed honey, exactly as you would find it in wild nature.
This will surprise even the most experienced honey lovers.
Deep in the vast wild flora of Greece, where over 6000 different flora species thrive, our apiaries are specialized to make this honeycomb in a natural way and without human intervention. Once the bees seal the honeycomb inside the food-grade plastic box, and while it is still in the hive, we put the cap on it closing the box permanently to protect it from the outside atmosphere. You will be the first to open this box, and the first to unseal the honey from its natural wax. This kind of honey will always be fresh, even in the winter of next year, remaining incredibly rich in taste and substance.

Expiration Date / Storage / Shipping:
Honeycomb, raw honey and natural beeswax have no expiration date due to their natural antibacterial and antiviral properties. We put a 4 year expiration date indicatively. It can be stored in any shady place below 35 degrees Celsius, even in the freezer if you prefer it crispy.
Honeycomb ages and sweetens due to the natural phenomenon of crystallization of raw honey.
If you are a shop keeper, you may request a honeycomb from previous productions as far as May 2018. The purpose of this is to witness the perfectly preserved quality and amazing aging process which surprises even the most experienced honey lovers. The beeswax partially dissolves into the honey over time, unleashing the full flavor of the natural beeswax and blending perfectly with the honey. This is un unprecedented honey experience. Aging is easy, simply store the box in any temperature, under shade. The longer you store it, the honey becomes harder and sweeter, and some of the wax disappears into the honey enriching the taste in a marvelous way. Meanwhile, the honeycomb still looks the same, just as if the bees made it today.
The difference between Primal and classic honeycomb:
Honey lovers can buy the classic honeycomb only in the summer. That honeycomb is placed in a package to be consumed later or sold in a shop, but there is no way to support that wax structure without damaging it, so it immediately starts to lose its natural wax seal and the honey leaks out. That honey loses the protection of the wax as it has come in contact with oxygen and the atmosphere. Meanwhile, the wonderfully detailed work of the bees that built the wax disappears and the customer does not get to bring it home in the form nature made it.
Classic honeycomb contains a layer of wax in the middle of the comb, which is too much to be edible, and its honey cells are too short and made out of a lot of wax that accumulates in your mouth in large pieces that you must chew but you cannot swallow.
Built by bees directly inside this package:
Our honeycomb is sealed on all inner sides of the package by the bees themselves, in their own natural way, without any use of chemicals or other substances and without human intervention at any stage. Thus this natural honeycomb remains exactly as it was made in the hive, even if the customer turns the package upside down to view it, even if he shakes it and leaves it upside down or sideways on the shelf. This honey preserves its quality in the wax indefinitely, and it will certainly surprise honey lovers even in winter as the taste of fresh honey is released from the wax for the first time.
Low wax content:
This honeycomb, unlike the classic honeycomb, does not create the need to remove wax from the mouth. We can easily and safely consume and swallow the entire honeycomb with all its beeswax, as it easily breaks down. For the first time, we can combine honeycomb with bread and other foods without compromising the edibility of any dish.
It is easily spread, and melts in hot drinks:
Our bees are required to draw their wax cells to twice the normal height, without the help of a wax layer in the middle, making the honey cells so thin that they break down in your mouth! This new honeycomb technique is patented!
12 months a year, everywhere:
Unlike the classic honeycomb, this honey will not be unsealed from the natural wax cells regardless of the time passed or the storage and transport conditions of the package.
For the first time, this type of honey can be easily transported to dry and distant areas, even in the winter where honey lovers do not have access to this truly raw, perfectly preserved honey.
As you would find it in nature:
This honeycomb box is closed permanently before it leaves the hive, and remains closed until a customer opens it for the first time. As a result, this honey has avoided any contact with human handling as well as oxidation from the atmosphere.
This honeycomb is perfectly edible in any dish:
It is a primal experience, a piece of wild nature in your hands!
