This year we received a Golden Medal for spruce honey
The organizer of the assessment is the exhibition company Pomurski sejem d.d. in cooperation with the Beekeeper’s Association of the region of Pomurje and the Beekeepers’ Association of Slovenia.

On delivery of the honey sample the beekeeper has to present a declaration ensuring that the honey was produced by his bees and that it is of Slovenian origin. The honey packer has to indicate the country of origin and guarantee for its traceability. The beekeepers too declare the country of origin of the honey made by their bees.
The assessment committee is made up of experts from Slovenia and abroad. These experts are adequately educated and experienced and are authorized honey examiners. The assessment will be held according to the criteria quoted in the Regulations for the Sensory Assessment of Honey by the Beekeepers’ Association of Slovenia.
