Australia’s superfood honeys exclusively on show at IFE

Some of the world’s most nutritious, rare and premium honey varieties come from the pristine, ancient forests of Australia.

UK retailers and buyers are invited to experience these unique varieties and meet with high grade honey suppliers at the Australia Stand (3611) at International Food & Drink Exhibition (IFE) at ExCel London from 25th to 27th March.

Australia’s biodiversity infuses powerful medicinal properties

The rich floral biodiversity of Australia’s native bushland, with a high concentration of rare flower species, produces bioactive honeys with scientifically proven medicinal properties, low GI and higher antimicrobial properties than many other honeys.

While Manuka honey has gained global popularity as one of nature’s sweetest superfoods, there are even more varieties of Australian honeys with exceptional medicinal benefits gaining popularity with health-conscious consumers across the globe.

Jarrah, Karri and Marri honey are found nowhere else in the world. These varieties are sourced from native flowering trees in Western Australia’s famed south-west biodiversity hotspot, where more than 8000 rare species of wildflowers bloom.

These trees flower only once every few years, so there is an exclusive and limited supply available.
