norwegian honey

We want to bring to you some of the unique flavors from the Norwegian nature

Norway has a rich and clean nature that covers big parts of the nation.

Only 3% of the country is agricultural land and just under 2% of the country is built on. 33% of the country is forest area and another 33% is alpine tundra.

This gives us the possibility of collecting the finest pure honey from a variaty of wild nature, far away from farmland and industries.

All our apiaries are placed in the forest or at the edge of a forest. We only collect nectar from wild flowers.

Our honey is always 100% pure and raw

That means it has not been heated or pasteurized and nothing has been added. In fact, if the honey has been subject to any of these steps, we are not allowed to call it "honey" by Norwegian Law.

We want to keep as much of the "good stuff" as possible in our honey. For quality reasons we do let our honey run through a strainer once to remove any bigger particles of pollen, propolis and beeswax, but we do not filter it. There will be smaller particles of both propolis and pollen in our honey.

This way we make sure that our honey is loaded with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and enzymes.

  • Healthiest bees

    Norway has one of the healthiest bee populations in the world.

    No antibiotics are allowed within beekeeping, only natural remedies can be used.

    Wax / honeycomb is regularly tested for remains of prohibited substances.

  • Strictly regulated

    Health checks are done regularly on all our bees, and the results are to be reported to the Norwegian Food Safety Authority. Only registered certified beekeepers can perform these test.

    The Norwegian Food Safety Authority also performs random tests on bees, wax and honey to make sure that everything is according to regulations.

    These measures give us one of the healthiest population of bees in the world.

  • The word "Honey"

    By Norwegian law, you are not allowed to call a product "honning" (the Norwegian word for honey) if it has been heated, if anything has been added to the product or the moisture content is too high. "Honning" has to be 100% natural, pure, raw, unheated, unpasteurized.
