The festive season is upon us and Maes Honey would like to thank all of you for the trust you have placed in us, both customers and suppliers, throughout the year.

Maes Honey has become the main honey exporter in Spain, reaching more than 40 countries.

Sustainability, integrity, quality and responsibility are fundamental values for us. Maes Honey wants to offer you honey that is committed to the environment and to all its beekeepers.

A year of great challenges

This year, 2021, Maes Honey has achieved one of its major objectives, namely to start work on the expansion of its plant at the beginning of September, which will be completed in June of next year.

The Maes plant currently has 7,650 m² built on a plot of 76,500 m². The enlargement will increase the working area to 15,000 m². This will mean a considerable increase of 49% of the facilities.

Maes Honey’s goal is to increase storage capacity, both for honey and other products.

The need to increase the honey stock is due to logistical supply problems, with the objective of guaranteeing a correct supply, both in terms of time and quality of the products.

Maes Honey expects to market some 10,000 tons of honey within 5 years, generating an increase of 25%-30% of total sales.

Since 2011 we have been working and taking care of our products so that they are in the best conditions. Our quality certifications endorse us BRC, IFS, Kosher, FDA and Halal.

Sweeten your Christmas with honey

Replace processed sugars with more traditional honey and sweeten Christmas as you deserve.

Many of the traditional Christmas sweets are made with honey. To make sure this is the case, check the ingredients before adding them to the basket. You also have the option of handcrafting your own candies with the assurance that the products used are natural.

With the cold weather of these dates, coffees and infusions are always appetizing. Changing the habit of sweetening these drinks and starting to use honey as a sweetener will be a very good way to introduce honey in your eating habits.

Since Christmas is a time of excesses, introducing honey in your diet with a moderate amount, will help you to satiate yourself and not opt for such heavy meals.
