Beekeeping is an old tradition in the Moldavian plateau and the love for bees and honey has brought us to the point where we are now. ApiCris is a Romanian-owned company founded in Iaşi, the heart of Moldavia, in 2010. When it comes to honey –making ApiCris takes into account two important values : the beekeepers’ care and the responsibility for honey consumers.
We put all the care in the center of our passion for honey in order to offer you a high-end quality product . We have developed and refined our unique way of honey-making, driven by our unmatched standards for quality as well as our passion for creative excellence.
We proudly recommend our honey because it is exceptional in terms of the qualities being unmistakably fragrant in taste due to the specific melliferous area.
