We Care For Bees

As Australia’s #1 honey brand, it goes without saying that we LOVE our honey bees. We believe it’s our responsibility to respect the health of our planet by protecting these wonderful tiny workers that do so much for us. Because it’s not us that makes honey, it’s our bees. Australia is renowned for the health of our bees, with our country free from many of the diseases and pests that impact other countries across the globe. We are proud to pack honey produced by some of the world’s healthiest bees in our pristine Australian landscape.

Capilano passionately cares about our bees, beekeepers and mother nature. That’s why we have chosen to put the honey bee at the heart of our brandmark. Affectionately named Phoebee, our little mascot is an ambassador for honey bees and the wellbeing of our planet.
