Agro Arena deals with 2 types of honey – our own production which is certified as organic, and non-certified products provided by our partners.The organic honey is produced and controlled at our company. The honey produced by our special contract partners is not submitted for organic certification, but is controlled by independent institutions and its quality is guaranteed. In order to meet the increasing demand for organic honey, we are considering to apply for organic certification on behalf of our partners which we could offer as our certified products (a 2 years` period of testing is required after the date of application).
