About Us

True Source Honey, LLC is an effort by a number of honey companies and importers to call attention to the problem of illegally sourced honey; to encourage action to protect consumers and customers from these practices; and to highlight and support legal, transparent and ethical sourcing.

The initiative seeks to help maintain the reputation of honey as a high-quality, highly valued food and further sustain the U.S. honey sector.

As noted in our pledge, we endeavor to do business with companies that share our concern for food safety and security. We stand against the collection, processing or sale of adulterated honey or honey that has been obtained in circumvention of U.S. law.

We also espouse a global standard for high-quality honey that does not allow for adulteration with added syrups or other sweetener extenders, or use of inappropriate additives in honey production. We have urged the Food and Drug Administration to establish a legal definition of honey that would help in regulating the purity and safety of honey to safeguard American producers and consumers against those who seek to circumvent trade and food safety laws.

We actively support U.S. beekeepers, including supporting research to help beekeepers maintain the health and high quality of U.S. honey production and to fight colony collapse disorder. True Source Honey member companies are proud supporters of the Foundation for the Preservation of Honey Bees and Haagen Dazs' Help the Honey Bees initiative, as well as members of the American Beekeeping Federation and the American Honey Producers Association.
