Protecting honeybee colonies is a high priority at Heavenly Organics because we understand that this issue is critical to protecting our food supply. Honeybee colonies pollinate most of the crops we eat and without them, we would experience food shortages worldwide. According to the American Beekeeping Federation, crops would have much lower yield and quality would be greatly reduced without our honeybees during bloom time. Unfortunately, herbicides and pesticides are threatening the survival of honey bees. The most commonly used pesticide is Glyphosate.
Around the world, countries are banning Glyphosate, setting restrictions to limit its use, or have a plan to ban or restrict the use of it in the future. These countries include:
- Czech Republic
- El Salvador
- New Zealand
- Sri Lanka
- United Kingdom
Heavenly Organics is one of the first generations of companies to be Glyphosate Residue Free Certified through the Detox Project! Each product is sent and tested separately to evaluate the levels of glyphosate present. Our honey is harvested from wild beehives in Northern and Central India and parts of the Himalayas. Due to the remote locations where the beehives are harvested, our honeybee colonies are not affected by pesticides or herbicides. We are proud to be the first honey company to hold a Glyphosate Residue Free certification, because protecting our honeybees also means supporting humanity.
