Not all honey is legally and ethically sourced, and that’s a problem. Most honey is from high-quality legal sources, but some brokers and importers circumvent tariffs and quality controls, selling illegal Chinese honey of questionable quality without traceability.
Despite federal crack-down efforts, millions of pounds of illegally sourced honey may continue to enter the United States.
That’s bad for U.S. consumers, retailers and food manufacturers who care about quality, traceability and food safety.
True Source Honey was launched by a group of concerned North American honey companies and importers. The initiative’s True Source CertifiedTM Program provides audits by an internationally recognized third-party firm that certifies the source of honey from hive to table.
About 30% of honey sold in North America is now True Source Certified. Many of the largest grocery retailers and club stores now only use certified honey for their store brands, including Costco (Kirkland Signature) and Target (Market Pantry and Simply Balanced).
The True Source CertifiedTM Program has been applauded by U.S. beekeepers and honey industry leadership, including the American Honey Producers Association and the American Beekeeping Federation, the two largest organizations for U.S. beekeepers.
One of the main reasons is that it provides
traceability from hive to table, helping
ensure the food safety and security of the honey used in the United States.
