Island Abbey Foods Ltd™ Now Offering New Honibe® Honey Lozenges™ Flavour Variations for Both Adults and Children

Charlottetown, PE, Canada (PRWEB) February 01, 2013

Island Abbey Foods Ltd.™, a PEI based natural health product and specialty food producer, has announced today that their Honibe® Honey Lozenges™ product line will now be expanding with six new Honey Lozenges for adult and children’s health.

Honibe Honey Lozenges are the world's first lozenges made from 100% pure dried honey. Honey Lozenges are now available in pure honey formulations with added natural sources of Cinnamon, Blackcurrant and Cranberry + Blueberry, as well as, natural Menthol and Eucalyptus formulations with Cinnamon, Cherry, and Spearmint. These new Honey Lozenges are for the temporary relief of sore throat and nasal congestion. They are conveniently sized for easy transportation in pockets, briefcases, purses, etc. Island Abbey Foods will be featuring the new products on their online retail store at for direct purchase.

“We are so excited to announce today that we are expanding our current Honibe Honey Lozenges line with new flavour and product variations for the natural health cough and cold category”, stated John Rowe, President of Island Abbey Foods Ltd. “In celebration of these new product launches, we are offering all Honibe customers a 25% off coupon for all online orders placed in the next month.

Honibe Honey Lozenges are made with 100% pure dried honey and contain honey’s natural properties. Other honey lozenges on the market only contain a small percentage of honey (typically less than 5%) and are made from refined sugar. The Honibe Honey For Health line of products are 100% all natural and a healthier alternative to refined sugar products. Honey is proven to contain anti-bacterial & anti-microbial properties, as well as, anti-oxidants and nutrients (Arbor Nutrition, 2009). Honey is also an alternative for Diabetics and for people on low or restricted carbohydrate diets as honey is rated lower on the glycemic index than refined sugars: glucose = 100, sucrose = 68, honey =55 (Arbor Nutrition, 2009). Honey has also been proven as a healthier option for adults and children compared to DM based cough syrups (Penn State College of Medicine, Paul, 2007).

Island Abbey Foods flagship brand Honibe has seen huge growth and recognition in the last few years. The Honibe Honey Drop achieved the most prestigious food award in the world at SIAL Paris 2010, the Global SIAL d’Or (Gold Medal), which recognized the Honibe Honey Drop as “The Best New Food Product in the World”. Using the same proprietary technology as the award winning Honey Drop, the Honibe product line has since expanded to include Honey Delights candies, Honey Sprinkles for cooking and baking, and Honey Lozenges for coughs and colds. Honibe was subsequently honoured with the “Canada Brand Business Award” at SIAL (Toronto) in 2011. Honibe was also featured on one of Canada’s most popular television shows, CBC’s Dragons’ Den, where entrepreneurs pitch their ideas to savvy business investors. The Dragons smelled money in the honey pot as Honibe was offered one of the largest deals in the shows history. In August 2012, the Canadian Space Agency selected the Honibe Honey Drop as one of its ‘Snacks For Space’ and the Honey Drop will be going to the International Space Station with Canadian Commander Chris Hadfield’s December 2012 mission. Most recently, Island Abbey Foods was given the honour of being named one of Progress Magazines Fastest Growing Companies in 2012.
