Suma Honeys

We hear stories all the time about honey not always being exactly as it seems, particularly those shipments bound for countries who’s import laws are not as stringent as our own here in the UK. Apparently it’s not uncommon for honey to be blended with a syrup base to keep costs low, among other things that can compromise the quality.

Here at Suma we keep a very close eye on the origin of all our Brand products and as such we’ve checked that our honey supplier can provide evidence of quality pure crops, and that all EU import legislation is adhered to. To that end we can reassure our customers that our own brand honey has been sourced from superior, unadulterated honey with all its required tests and checks complete.

Our supply chain is very short. Prior to being packaged here in the UK, the honey used in all our blends is mostly cropped by beekeeping cooperatives in China and Mexico often in remote areas. The importer visits the farms regularly, which goes to ensure quality practices, and of course happy bees too!

Need convincing?

Take the taste test – spread it straight on hot toast, for an early morning treat, or why not add it to your favourite hot drink as an alternative to sugar.

    Hi, how about some UK honey for the Suma brand? I’d happily pay a bit more to know that we were supporting our own crop pollination, UK producers, and lowering food miles.

  • I agree with Rory – UK honey would surely be more sensible?

  • Luisa Gonzalez says:

    Hello Suma and folks, I am an Scottish producer of Blossom and Heather Raw honey. Quite happy to supply here 🙂

    so they have hilltop farm on raw. I am not discouraged. I am speaking to the soil association this week to find out what are the criteria for organic honey
