Where does Capilano Honey come from?
Capilano’s premium Australian honey is sourced from our network of over 600 Australian beekeeping families, who ensure that their bees are foraging in the pristine Australian environment (largely unpopulated national parks and forests). Australia arguably has the healthiest honey bees in the world², and is largely free of the major pests and diseases seen in other honey bee populations around the globe.
Did you know, 80% of the honey produced in Australia comes from Eucalyptus trees? Capilano receives over 500 different floral sources per year during the main production season which runs from Spring to Autumn with peak production in summer. Trees flower for around 4 weeks each year and the beekeepers will move their hives to follow the tree flowering cycle. Honey is an agriculture product – trees and the bees need the right environmental conditions to produce honey.
