Our linden honey has been awarded a bronze medal at the international honey contest in Belgium in December.
Stanin Hani produces linden honey in the Finnish capital region of Helsinki and Espoo city.
Despite coronavirus restrictions, the contest took place and was partly organised online. This year, there were more than 100 honey samples taking part in the competition, out of which 85 made it to the final stage once their premium quality was confirmed by laboratory analysis. All four honeys sent to the contest from Stanin Hani fulfilled the high quality criteria.
The international jury awarded one of the honey, the linden honey (in French ”tilleul dominant”) with bronze medal.
Last year, three honeys produced by Stan were equally awarded a bronze medal in the same competion: buckwheat honey, forest honey from honeydew and honey from the urban Lillklobb Permaculture in Espoo.
This proves that Finnish honey from the south of the country and from an urban environment can have an outstanding quality.
