Sustainable, versatile, global, delicious: Honey’s got buzz

By the Candian Press, InsideOttawaValley, February 24, 2020 Honey isn’t just honey anymore. At farmers markets, grocery stores and restaurants, there’s a wide assortment of honeys in various colours and tastes, from far-away places and ones next door. Why is a food that’s been part of the human diet for millennia suddenly so trendy? (...)Increased awareness of the importance of bees and pollination also has a lot to do with why people are seeking out honey, says Lori Jean Levy, CEO and owner of My Global Table, an importer of specialty goods. Bee populations have plummeted, she notes, threatening the food supply.

``This makes it a true current events issue,” she says. Honey is a sustainable and eco-friendly product at a time when many consumers are making that a priority.
