Main honey producing countries are Argentina, Mexico, China, Brazil, Cuba, Ukraine, Hungary, Chile, Bulgaria, El Salvador, Guatemala, Romania, Italy, Portugal, France, Australia and New Zealand.

Product & Sourcing

Origin

Honey comes from the nectar of blossoms or from the sap of various plants and trees (honeydew). Depending on the flower species, honeys differ in their consistency, color, sweetness and taste.

Honey types

Honey occurs naturally, mainly as monofloral or polyflora honey types. Monoflora honeys are obtained from the nectar of one dominating blossom. Polyflora honeys are obtained from the combined nectar of various flower species.

Harvest

During the honey harvest, the beekeeper removes the wax-sealed honeycombs from the beehive, removes the wax and extracts the honey out of the combs.

Royal Jelly, the feeding substance for queen bees, is a natural bee product. In the food sector, especially in food supplements, it is consumed either pure or as a functional component in finished products. In pharmaceutical products and natural medicines it is used as an active substance with health promoting properties. For apitherapy purposes it is a key product from the bee-hive which is either consumed orally or applied externally. Wellness products and natural cosmetics integrate Royal Jelly more and more in their formulations due to their antimicrobial properties and nurturing functionality.

Bee pollen is collected by Honey bees (Apis mellifera) on all types of flowers and stored in the beehive.  Apart from nutritional properties, Bee Pollen is said to have a strengthening effect on the immune system, a lowering effect on cholesterol and a general ability to inhibit ailments. The combined effect on nutrition, health and general well-being makes Bee Pollen a high-value nutraceutical. In the field of natural cosmetics, Bee Pollen is a component for regenerating skincare lotions and creams.
