Ioannis Stiliaras, a dental technician by profession, commenced the “journey with bees” as a hobby, alongside with his job. Pursuing a high quality nutrition, he enriched his knowledge on beekeeping and entrepreneurship and eventually became the first beekeeper that delved into the organic honey production in the Mountainous Region of Nafpaktia.
The journey dates back in his childhood and started in the village Daphne, where his grandfather traditionally kept a permanent apiary. This is where he received the first stimuli and knowledge and thus, traditional beekeeping evolved from the old buckets to modern hives with moving frames. Along the way, his enterprise evolved with the creation of a modern packaging plant, which is constantly brought up to date, with the aid of his daughter. Their effort is to make the “premium” honey of their region known to as many countries as possible.
