We harvest Organic Mountain Honey from wild and natural flowers along the elevated slopes ( >12,000 feet) of Hindu Kush Mountains. The smell is very aromatic, flowery and persistent, reminiscent of a fresh highland morning breeze.

Some of these flowers are so rare that their botanical names are unknown. These flowers blossom in late summer and honey harvest is dependent on local weather conditions. Only a limited quantity is harvested and at times, there is no honey at all.

This is a very rare and unique honey. The clean fresh air, wild natural flowers and the pure glacier waters are used by honeybees to make this pure honey, only once a year. 

Our beekeepers are trained to EU Standards to harvest the finest quality and we make sure that there is no adulteration of any kind involved. 

We take pride in our quality and we believe that our customers deserve only the best!

Why we can not sell our honey cheaper?

  1. We do not mix this honey with other cheap ingredients in order to bulk up the honey. This is pure honey. There are no additional ingredients.

 

  1. We do not heat our honey in order to extract it more easily. Yes, we spend more time and energy manually extracting the honey- because we want to keep our honey raw with those amazing health benefits. 

 

  1. We do not filter our honey. So this honey has natural bee pollen, micro pieces of propolis and bee wax, all of which benefit your health.

 

  1. We do not use our bees for commercial pollination. Our bee farm is located in a wild place, so our honey does not have any pesticides or herbicides or other harmful chemicals.

 

  1. Any real beekeeper will tell you how much work is required with bees to get each jar of honey. If you have bees, then you just work, work and work.

 

  1. We do not use any chemicals in order kill pests found in the hives, nor do we use chemicals in the winter time in order to help the bees survive until spring. If you do your research you will find that 90% of beekeepers use chemicals on bees.

We are Dubai Food Muncipality's approved brand. 

Honey is harvested by our trained and certified beekeepers under our supervision and Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) of International Standards. 

Once harvested, honey samples are sent to Honey Research Institute operating under NARC.  

A second batch of samples is sent to our internal laboratory which is registered with PSQC. In our state of the art laboratory, we check honey of adulteration through various tests, such as:

  • pH
  • Electrical Conductivity
  • Ash Test at 600C
  • Thermal Stability Test
  • Glucose and Fructose Test
  • Pollen Density Test
  • HMF Test 
  • Sucrose Adulteration Test

We carry out these tests and prepare reports as per the SOPs of Quality Services International (Germany) requirements. Our test reports are accepted worldwide for an accuracy up to 3 decimal places. 

Before packaging, we randomly send our batches to Quality Services International (Germany) Laboratory and National Food Lab (UAE). 

We also spend a lot of time, effort and resources towards training and development of our beekeepers to International Standards. All our beekeepers are certified from our training academy. This is why, each time you order, we guarantee you a quality which is second to none.
