Anemelon was founded in 2013, in Heraklion, Crete, by Fanouris Leontarakis, who was coming from a family of beekeepers.
After his studies in Business Management, he started producing honey to help his father, who was an amateur beekeeper. After a while he decided to become a professional beekeeper, and started producing the pure Cretan honey Anemelon, which has won the Gold Award in the Mediterranean Taste Awards 2020 in the category ‘Quality’.
On 10 October 2020, for the World Sight Day, a Braille sign was placed on the packaging to help people who are visually impaired and to raise public awareness. Anemelon with a feeling of responsibility, decided, despite the high cost, to keep the prices at the same level.
