Our story

Power of bees. Proven by science.

IN LOVE with bees. DEDICATED to improving the lives of people. COMMITTED to creating a world friendly to bees and people.

Medex is a family company which has been passionately connected to bees for almost 70 years. As pioneers of apitherapy we are improving the lives of people with natural, efficient and innovative food supplements based on bee products and other gifts of an intact nature.

We are upgrading the traditional use of bee products with clinically supported innovations – from nature to laboratories and then to people! By realising our sustainable mission we are co-creating a world that is friendly to indispensable bees, which are responsible for a third of global food production, and to people – all people, not just a few.


We are bringing the best from nature to people

“The Medex products are based on the values of a company that with its interlacement of tradition and innovation combines the strength of natural bee products and modern science. We will keep including only verified ingredients in the right doses in our products, which are standardised, in order to guarantee efficiency to our consumers. Our motto Power of bees. Proven by science. must be reflected in each product.”


Aleša Mižigoj, CEO

Tradition as a starting point. Innovation as guidance.
A bee family is an extraordinary superorganism. Each member has a specific role, which has preserved this species for millions of years. Bees, these amazing beings, “invented” magnificent preparations, such as propolis, royal jelly, honey, bee pollen – which are beneficial for people as well –, in order to survive. A Slovenian saying goes: Follow the bees. This is also the genetic make-up of our company, which defines us and from which we draw inspiration for our work.

Tradition and the power of nature remain the source and inspiration for our work. We complement them with the verified quality of patented and standardised ingredients, the effects of which are proven by clinical studies, in the right doses and combinations. In Medex’s development laboratories a registered research team with 4 PhDs develops products that combine traditional use with clinically proven effects.

Medex products are based on standardised and controlled content of main active substances and high production standards with which we ensure their consistent quality. We also pay significant attention to selecting packaging and have been packing an increasing number of products in glass packaging in order to preserve the value and efficiency of natural active substances as best as possible and at the same to take better care for the environment.
Medex has been operating in a sustainable manner for decades. From a company, which established and developed beekeeping already in former Yugoslavia, grew an undertaking that is expanding beekeeping around the world. In this manner we are realising quite a few of the seventeen of Unesco’s sustainable goals: eliminating poverty, hunger, caring of the environment, empowering women. Indeed, beekeeping contributes to the achievement of all these goals.

Aleša Mižigoj


Since Aleša Mižigoj was born in a family that characterised our territory with the development of apitherapy and wide use of bee products, the awareness of the usefulness of bees for our environment and our health was laid in her cradle. After graduating from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering in Ljubljana she forged her own path of entrepreneurship. In 2000, she continued her path in the Medex family company as a sales director in the domestic and foreign market, and already at the end of 2011 she assumed the role of Chairwoman of the Board. Under her leadership, Medex developed from a mid-sized company to a leading European company offering food supplements based on bee products, which is not only present on numerous European markets, but is expanding its mission across all continents.


Who is who at Medex

At Medex, we follow the example of bee families when cooperating as well – each of us has a clearly defined role, but only together can we achieve our goals.
