Honey from the Minett UNESCO Biosphere

Initiative phase: Well established and running

Luxembourg honey from the Unesco Biosphere Reserve

Honey from the Minett UNESCO Biosphere

The 50 hives are located in a NATURA 2000 area in Rodange, Lamadelaine, Pétange, Lasauvage, Ronnebierg and Differdange. The honey is sold in jars of 125gr, 250gr and 500gr at the market in Esch-sur-Alzette every Friday morning and in Luxembourg City at the Place de Paris every Thursday morning. To renew the labels of his honey jars, Marcel Zoller, a beekeeper from Differdange, wanted to use the brand Mmmh...Minett! which in this case aims to create a territorial visibility directly linked to this region of miners.

What’s needed

Engaged citizen


Minett UNESCO Biophere has developed the brand "Mmmh...Minett!" to help producers market their products and to create territorial visibility directly associated with our mining region.

"Mmmh...Minett!" refers to "local consumption" and to ideas close to the heart of biosphere reserves, namely rethinking man's relationship with nature, reconnecting the population with and being proud of their homeland, or even respecting seasonality by reducing food waste.
