Island Abbey Foods Ltd.™ Has Announced the Launch of Their Honibe® Honey Delights® and Pure Liquid Honey in Co-Op Atlantic Stores

Charlottetown, PE, Canada (PRWEB) August 06, 2013

Island Abbey Foods Ltd.™ a PEI based natural health product and specialty food producer, has announced two additional product launches in Co-Op Atlantic stores. The two new product lines that are listed within Co-Op Atlantic are the Honibe® Honey Delights® candies in a 20 count retail bag and their Honibe® Pure Liquid Honey variety offered in a 500g squeeze bottle.

Co-Op Atlantic and Island Abbey Foods have a long relationship working together over the years. Co-Op was one of the first groups of stores to carry the Honibe product line locally on Prince Edward Island. With the listing of the two additional Honibe product lines, Co-Op Atlantic now carries the complete set of the Honibe line of products in their stores. Co-Op Atlantic is very committed to local initiatives and supporting Island products and companies. Co-Op has been very supportive of Island Abbey Foods and the continuously evolving Honibe product line.

“We are very pleased to be able to continue to build on the relationship that we have with Co-Op Atlantic.” Stated John Rowe, President of Island Abbey Foods Ltd., “We have been working with Co-Op Atlantic for many years and are very proud to have them as the first retail chain to carry all of our Honibe product lines. The launch of our Honibe pure liquid honey and our Honibe Honey Delights candies on Co-Op store shelves is a great accomplishment for us. We are pleased to be working with such a great supporter of Atlantic Canadian companies.”

Honibe Honey Delights and Honibe Liquid Honey are both available for direct purchase at, for retailers, and for food service. The Honey Delights are available in bags of 20 pieces, in bulk cases or in jars and the liquid honey is available in 250g and 500g bottles along with in a creamed variety.

Honibe Honey Delights are made with 100% pure honey and are only 10 calories per 2.6 gram piece and contain honey’s natural properties. Other honey product lines 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.
