When Dreams and Reality Collide – if we truly believe in our Purpose, the result can be something spectacular! HoneyKist Apiaries Limited (HKA) is a direct creation of such an impact.
Established in 2010, HoneyKist Apiaries (HKA) Limited is a Jamaican born, family-owned and community oriented business that grew from a cottage-industry enterprise and developed based on a belief that the purest and healthiest foods are those which have been provided by Nature. From this vision emerged a true passion and desire to create premium, innovative, all natural Jamaican products that are not only good, but also good for you! It is about once again bringing that pure natural goodness and flavour to our tables, whilst restoring and maintaining our harmony with nature, the surrounding community and its environment.
This is reflected in not only how we set-up and manage our apiaries, handle our bees, and reap our honey; but also, in how we process our products. We work with and within the community to ensure the quality and freshness of the local fruits, vegetables and spices we incorporate in our products; as well as to support the community’s growth and development.
HoneyKist has four apiaries (approx. 200 hives) located in the sun-drenched countryside of Jamaica - from the flourishing low grounds of Clarendon and St. Elizabeth to the cool blossoming hillside of Manchester. However, at times we also purchase some of our raw honey from our local bee farmers as well. The natural lush beauty and warm climate are the key ingredients in our superior pure raw Jamaican honey. Our finest quality, 100% Jamaican honey is harvested at the peak of maturity; and in order to guarantee our quality, we ensure our farmers share our beliefs and passion as well. Therefore, our honey is selected only from those hives which are strong and flourishing ensuring that our bees remain healthy and every drop of honey harvested is of the highest standard. Every batch is tested for purity and moisture content and never blended or diluted in any way. All natural, no artificial flavours or additives: our natural honey products are never treated or processed in any way that would affect or disrupt the balance of their natural nutrients.
