Biosphere Reserve of Terres de l’Ebre

APÍCOLA BRULL CASANOVA S.C.C.L as a producer of Mel de l’avi Lluís honey into Biosphere Reserve of Ebro lands, has obtained the certificate for this type of work. Since spring 2016 we have begun to label our products with Biosphere Reserve emblem when products are made in this territory. Thanks to this, we can transfer UNESCO’s recognition to our products which ensures that they have been made under quality commitments and respect to our environment.
