MIMIEL: the essence of the honeybee in Yucatan

Mimiel is a 100% Mexican company started more than 25 years ago in the City of Mérida Yucatán, to become one of the most important suppliers of packaged honey with excellent quality.

Currently, the company has more than 1,200 beehives distributed in 50 apiaries, and the rest of the honey they
package is obtained from associated beekeepers around the state.
