Welcome to the sweet world of the original Byron Bay Honey Company. We are a family owned company providing employment to the local community of the Byron Shire.
We fully empathise with our customers' concerns regarding diluted honeys. We never have and never will use inferior imported honeys or dilute them with other substances like rice syrup. Each jar can be traced to a small number of trusted Australian beekeepers. We have known them personally for many years and have visited their extraction plants many times. With each delivery they are signing an official document verifying that their honey is coming straight from their hives to our factory.
Since 1993 we have been supplying authentic and natural honeys from the coastal regions of eastern Australia. Our bees are collecting nectar from trees found in pollution-free rainforest remnants and state forests reflective of the unique flora of Northern New South Wales between Mt. Warning-Wollumbin in the north and Bundjalung National Park in the south. Bees can bring traces of bee pollen back to the hive, which are enriching the taste profile of our products. All our honeys contain exclusively 100% Australian produce without blended inferior honeys imported from Mexico, Argentina, India or China. They are free of rice syrup, added sugar, glucose, artificial sweeteners or preservatives and have distinct flavours and unique aromas. In accordance with the seasons they offer a changing taste experience: In winter they can be darker and stronger in flavour whereas summer produces nectar for lighter and milder honeys. We are mostly filling Eucalypt honeys, ie. Ironbark, Brushbox, Greybox, Whitebox, Stringybark, White Mahagony, Bloodwood and some Macadamia honey. One of our longtime suppliers is a third generation apiarist family with a combined experience of about 100 years in harvesting Australian honey. With each jar of honey you will taste the different seasons and moods of our Australia's unique sub-tropical landscape.
Our honey factory is fully HACCP approved. We are annually audited for B-Safety - an internationally recognised quality assurance program guaranteeing highest industry standards.
