Hikiän is the first Finnish honey producer to receive the Demeter certification and thus at the moment the only one that produces biodynamic honey in Finland (2021).
Demeter is the brand for products from biodynamic agriculture. Only strictly controlled and contractually bound partners are permitted to use the brand. A comprehensive verification process ensures strict compliance with the International Demeter Biodynamic Standard, as well as applicable organic regulations in the various countries; without a gap, through every step, from agricultural production to processing and final product packaging.
A beekeeper may be granted Demeter certification if the beekeeper is able to demonstrate sufficient suitability for biodynamic production and the quality requirements for honey in accordance with the Demeter standards are fulfilled.
In Finland, the Demeter brand is administered by the Biodynamic Association.
