Why choose Wescobee Honey?

The question in most people’s minds when buying a different product is “What makes this product better than the one I already know?” Honey is no different.

So what sets Wescobee Honey apart?

The Wescobee Honey Company has been in operation since 1927. Today the company continues the long tradition established by its founders, in ensuring a quality honey product is maintained from point of production to the end consumer. Wescobee’s reputation for marketing a 100% pure quality Australian honey is well known in over fourteen countries around the world.

Wescobee honey is produced in the wild forest reserves of the South West and desert areas of Western Australia. These areas contain vast stands of Karri, Jarrah, Banksia, Heathland trees and shrubs. This region is ideal for the production of a 100% pure and natural honey due to a climate characterised by long sunny days and a crystal clear atmosphere aided by the strong cleansing Antarctic winds. This clean and unpolluted environment is free of fallout, acid rain and industrial pollutants.

Wescobee premium honey products are 100% pure and natural, containing:

  • No Additives
  • No Preservatives
  • No Added Sugars, Syrups or Extenders
  • No Artificial Flavourings
  • No Artificial Colourings

Wescobee honey is proud to produce just pure, natural 100% West Australian honey which is why Wescobee honey is in such demand. Such is the commitment to quality that Wescobee has become Quality Accredited under the International Standard of SQF 2000cm (compatible with ISO 9002), Organic Honey Packing Certified, HALAL Certified and Kosher. Additionally Wescobee has been accrediting each beekeeper supplier under the B-Qual certification system.

Around the world the apicultural industry suffers many diseases of the bees and hive. To control such diseases such as Varroa, European Foulbrood, Chalkbrood and Noseama, beekeepers feed and treat the bees with drugs and chemicals. Western Australia is unique in that it does not have these beehive diseases. This unique advantage results in a pesticide, drug and chemical free honey. Strict quarantine controls prevent honey or apiary products from entering Western Australia enabling us to protect our local industry from these diseases and keep the honey pure and natural.

Strategically Wescobee honey has other advantages. These include:

  • A Low Moisture Content – This is achieved by allowing the honey to fully ripen in the hive. The result is a dense honey having a moisture level of 17-18.5% (compared to other developing countries where 19.5-22% is common). The low moisture content prevents fermentation of the honey due to the wild yeasts interacting on the natural sugars. Additionally, high moisture honeys could indicate that it has been adulterated by the addition of water to the honey. Wescobee strictly monitors all honey moisture levels to ensure your product is the best that nature can provide.
  • Rich Dark Colour – For a long time the world market believed that only light coloured honey was best. Now research is showing that darker honeys contain a greater degree of minerals and trace elements essential for modern man and health. These darker honeys are prized among true honey eaters and the health food industry throughout the world. Wescobee honey is naturally rich in colour due to the soil, vegetation varieties and natural elements thereby giving the consumer these unique health benefits.
  • No Heat Damage During Processing or Packing – The application of heat to honey is to speed up the processing ability of honey. Internationally the test used to measure heat and age of honey is a HMF Test (Hydroxymethylfurfual). The world market is generally set to accept a level of 40mg/Kg. Wescobee honey consistently records a level well below this level – around half the international standard. This reflects in part, the care and attention given to our honey to give the consumer a product “just as nature produces it.
  • Organic Status – Wescobee honey is wild harvested meeting International Organic Standards. Wescobee is certified for Organic packing.
  • Microbiological Status – Due to the strict health standards of Australian law and the Company itself, Wescobee markets honey that is low in microbiological organisms. This low microbiological factor found in Wescobee honey is critical to consumers and results in the natural anti-microbial properties remaining at a maximum level.

This is why Wescobee is able to guarantee that its premium honey products are 100% pure, natural and of the highest quality in the world.
