The Honibe – Pure Honey Joy brand has seen a great deal of nationwide support since their first product, the Honey Drop®, was introduced in 2008, including multiple product awards from across Canada. Honibe’s recognition started to grow internationally when it won 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 and suckers / lollipops, 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 went to the International Space Station with Canadian Commander Chris Hadfield’s December 2012 mission. Most recently, Island Abbey Foods was named one of Progress Magazines Fastest Growing Companies in 2012.
