Harvested in Sophia region, North Madagascar.
Rosewood tree honey is harvested using traditional techniques. The natural hives are populated by a species of wild bee that is endemic to Madagascar. The region’s famers use absolutely no pesticides. Each harvest is bought from rural communities at above the market price and, in exchange, the producers undertake to respect the forests’ biodiversity.
This honey has been filtered and preserved in a EU-certified honey house.
Rosewood tree honey has a mellow, long-lasting, flowery taste and is know for its stimulating properties.
100% raw honey: all our honeys are analyzed to guarantee you the highest quality and purity. We use cold extraction in the most beekeeping tradition.
The Rosewood is one of the emblematic tropical trees of Madagascar. It is highly sought thanks to its dense wood properties which, unfortunately in turn have endeavored it.
Madagascar's biodiversity is truly unique. It is one of the countries in the world where the least amount of pesticides is being used. The latest international studies on neonicotinoids for example place Madagascar at the top of the list of countries least affected by pesticides. Farmers do not use phytosanitary products and, as such, Madagascar honeys have strong and powerful floral notes. Malagasy beekeepers are gathered in extremely elaborate apicultural villages. A part of their harvest receipts is donated for the creation of roads as well as educational and medical infrastructures.
Moreover, the local population is taught about the ecology and the importance of protecting and caring for their local biodiversity. Thus, an entire ecosystem built around the knowledge of apiculture, the power of bees and the richness of their ecosystem has emerged.
