The Honibe Story
honibe was born out of a camping trip “honey accident” in the mountains of British Columbia. Founders John & Susan Rowe were hiking in bear country when they opened up their back pack to pull out a glass jar of honey they were carrying, and found it had shattered leaving a sticky mess!
Why were we carrying a jar of honey in the first place? they asked themselves.
Honey is one of nature’s best kept healing secrets AND an excellent source of energy. Not only did this experience give them a good scare, but it also served as a “Eureka! moment” – there had to be an easier way to travel with honey. Ideally in a format that was less likely to attract bears!
After many years of research and experiments, they created honibe – the only pure dried honey in the world scientifically proven to retain all of honey’s naturally occurring health benefits. Today, their company’s mantra is to deliver honey to you in innovative and convenient products that contribute to your health and wellness in a way that only honey can: purely, naturally, effectively and with the fewest ingredients possible. They care about the health of humans AND bees. And they hope you will join them on their daily quest of choosing health.
What’s in a Name?
What’s in a name? honibe (pronounced honey-bee) pays homage to the hard working honey bees that make their product possible. They are passionate about precarious future of these amazing creatures.
Honey for Health

Bee the Change
At honibe, they care about the health of people. They also care about the health of bees. What many don’t realize is how closely linked the health potential of the population is to the health of the declining bee population. One third of the most delicious and nutritious foods on Earth simply wouldn’t exist without bees and pollination. Scientists call bees an indicator species because they are so instrumental to the biodiversity of the planet. When there is something wrong with our bee population it is a warning that the health of the planet’s ecosystem is also at risk. The bad news is that Bees are in trouble. Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) is a phenomenon where worker bees evacuate their hives and die. This decline in bee population is at a staggering rate of over 30% since 2006.
