Honey of Tenerife Label, guarantee of quality


The Honey of Tenerife back label,consisting of an image depicting beekeeping in Mt Teide, is a guarantee that the honey has been produced on the island and retains the original characteristics and properties of the flowers and bees of Tenerife.

The label also serves to indicate that the product has passed strict sensory quality controls and analyses, where applicable, in accordance with prevailing legislation.

The House of Honey is responsible for ensuring products meet the requirements needed to bear the Honey of Tenerife Designation of Origin label. With laboratories and an expert honey-tasting committee, the House of Honey is able to guarantee the quality and organoleptic properties of each type of honey.

Health and wellbeing

Honey has been considered by humans as a healthy food with healing properties since ancient times. Much research has been conducted and there is a great deal of scientific evidence to suggest that the unique properties of honey, especially those found in fresh artisan honey such as Tenerife honey, are beneficial to our health.

The Rural Tenerife Foundation has developed a line of marketing aimed at the health sector. This strategy consists of selling Tenerife Honeys bearing the El Productor label in pharmacies associated with the Cofarte pharmaceutical cooperative, health food stores and diet shops.

A leaflet has been designed under the generic title "The Honeys of Tenerife: a source of health and wellbeing", to raise awareness of and disseminate information on the health benefits of Tenerife Honey. The brochure contains a brief explanation of the properties of honey as well as information on recent scientific developments, which generally are related to the fight against ageing.
