Australian honey is produced by our hardworking beekeepers to the highest food production standards globally. Here in Australia, honey bees access more floral sources ideal for honey making than anywhere else in the world, which means Australian honey has the widest range of tastes and colours.
By purchasing 100% Australian honey, you’re supporting beekeepers who are at the heart of a healthy Australia.

65% of horticultural and agricultural crops require honey bees for pollination.

35 industries depend on honey bees to pollinate crops and trees for their production

1/3 of the food on your plate depends on honey bees

1,800 commercial beekeepers in Australia

20k tonnes average honey production per year (levied hives only)

$14.2 billion honey bee and pollination industries contribute to the Australian economy each year
