Company Profile

In 1928 Alexandros and Panagiotis Pittas, his sons, founded Attiki Bee Culturing company on Socratous Street, taking an initiative that radically changed how honey was traded and distributed by offering the Greek honey in small packages, with the brand name “ATTIKI Hymettus Honey”. Since then, Greek honey changed its course. Pittas brothers started taking part in the largest international trade fairs of the time, immediately winning distinctions and awards. In the 50’s Attiki Bee company left the narrow geographical boundaries of Athens and started expanding into new markets abroad, such as the USA, Canada, Australia. In the following decades, and after the death of the company’s two founders, the company was run by the children of Panagiotis, Alexandra and George, with the vision to keep the products that consumers loved.

Now

✓ It also has a specialized Apiculture Development Department that offers consulting, support and training to our beekeepers.

✓ It particularly supports any type of research on honey and bee products and it is constantly expanding into new foreign markets.
