About

The Honibe Story

 

honibe® was born out of a camping trip “honey accident” in the mountains of British Columbia. I was hiking in bear country when I opened up my back pack to pull out a glass jar of honey I was carrying, and found it had shattered leaving a sticky mess!Why was I carrying a jar of honey in the first place? Good question! Honey is one of nature’s best kept healing secrets AND an excellent source of energy.

Not only did this experience give me a good scare, but it also served as a “Eureka!” moment…there had to be an easier way to travel with honey. Ideally in a format that was less likely to attract bears!

 

After many years of research and experiments, we created honibe® – the only pure dried honey in the world scientifically proven to retain all of honey’s naturally occurring health benefits.Today, our company’s mantra is to deliver honey to you in innovative and convenient products that contribute to your health and wellness in a way that only honey can: purely, naturally, effectively and with the fewest ingredients possible. We care about the health of humans AND bees. And we hope you will join us on our daily quest of choosing health.

  • What’s in a name?

    What’s in a name? honibe® (pronounced honey-bee) pays homage to the hard working honey bees that make our product possible. We are passionate about precarious future of these amazing creatures and encourage you to check out our “Bee the change” page for more information on how you too can help save our bees.

Honey for health

 

Honey is a natural sugar produced by Honey Bees using nectar from flowers. Many people swarm to honey for its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Holistic practitioners consider it one of nature’s best all-around remedies and athletes around the world prefer honey as a pure energy source. Honey is a sweet flavourful liquid food of high nutritional value and immense health benefits. Hover over the honeycombs below to find out more!

Bee the change

 

At honibe® we care about the health of people. We also care about the health of bees.

 

What many don’t realize is how closely linked the health potential of our population is to the health of our declining bee population.
One third of the most delicious and nutritious foods on Earth simply wouldn’t exist without bees and pollination. Scientists call bees an indicator species because they are so instrumental to the biodiversity of our planet. When there is something wrong with our bee population it is a warning that the health of our planet’s ecosystem is also at risk.
The bad news is that Bees are in trouble. Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) is a phenomenon where worker bees evacuate their hives and die. This decline in bee population is at a staggering rate of over 30% since 2006.
