Sourcing of the best honeys
Rémi Porthault, founder of the brand, has been traveling the planet for years in search of the best honeys. Over time, he has forged strong links with the most qualitative beekeepers. He thus ensures the exclusive sourcing of the best wines for Miel Factory.
In France, he scours the countryside to help us discover the honeys of Ariège Pyrenees Rhododendron, of Gers carrot and so much others. Abroad, he embarks on a gastronomic tour of the most unknown honeys: the Brazilian coffee treel, the Lychee from Madagascar or even the Honey d'Ulmo from Patagonia.
Honey and gastronomy are inseparable for him: as when tasting a wine, the honey delivers all the characteristics of its origins, identifiable by their colors, their flavors and tastes.
Miel Factory has contributed, since its creation, to the emergence of a new honey sector, respectful of beekeepers, nature and consumers.
Hand in hand with beekeepers
Beekeeping is in great difficulty because of climate change, pesticides, diseases and new predators, such as the Asian hornet. In order to cope, the beekeeper must engage technical and human resources that greatly increase operating costs of his apiary.
These are the reasons why we buy our honey at the beekeeper's price, without negotiation on rates, so as not to put his company in difficulty. Our honeys come from mainly small farms with which we forge close and lasting ties.
