“ALFA” stands for the first letter of the Greek alphabet. It is also indicative of the premium quality of honey that the Greek island of Crete presents to the global market. White thyme, dittany of Crete, pine, sage and thyme are but a small fraction of the flora that offers Cretan bees exceptional raw materials to produce their honey, an all-natural product that excels due to its high nutritional value. “Fragiadakis Family” could not differ with its truly pure and authentic Cretan Thyme honey. Totally unprocessed, having not been subjected to any thermic handling, this honey comes from bees which live in a microclimate abundant with endemic herbs and flowers that give it a distinct, unique aroma and flavour.
It was Hippocrates, the Greek father of medicine, that wrote: “Honey and pollen cause warmth, clean sores and ulcers, soften hard ulcers of lips, heal carbuncles and running sores.” And philosopher Aristotle believed that “white honey (…) is good as a salve for soar eyes and wounds.”
