Island Abbey Foods Ltd™, specialty honey manufacturer, today announced a partnership with Comvita, the world's largest manufacturer and marketer of Manuka (Leptospermum) honey.

Comvita will use the technology created by Honibe™ to produce the first pure dried Manuka honey products in the world.

The first product from this collaboration will be Pure Manuka Honey Lozenges with a UMF (Unique Manuka Factor) of 10+.

The Honibe™ brand is built around a proprietary platform technology that has enabled the creation of 100% pure dried honey products in a variety of form factors with no additives or preservatives. Comvita will now expand their current product lines to include Honibe’s innovation in honey to create a 100% Pure Manuka Lozenge that will be available in eight and 16 count blister packs under the Comvita brand.

“Comvita is the leading producer of Manuka honey and Manuka products in the world,” stated, President of Island Abbey Foods Ltd., John Rowe. “Comvita has established a reputation for creating innovative natural health and wellbeing products which is further reiterated by this partnership. We will be producing a 100% Pure Manuka Lozenge for Comvita with our patented technology to create an entirely new innovation in Manuka honey.

“We are excited to collaborate with Island Abbey Foods to have them process our Manuka honey with their platform technology to create pure dried honey products with no additives or preservatives,” said Brett Hewlett, CEO of Comvita. “We are always looking for new and innovative products for our consumers and this partnership will now allow us to offer a 100% Pure Manuka Lozenge; a product that does not currently exist anywhere in the world in its 100% pure form.”
The Honibe™ brand has received major international recognition in recent months with the Honey Drop™, named as the Global SIAL d’Or Winner 2010 for the best new food product in the world. The Honey Drop™ was also named as the best new product in the 'Grocery Sweet 2010' and best of Canada 'Country Award 2010' categories. Honibe™ was recently featured on one of Canada’s most popular television shows, CBC’s Dragons’ Den, where entrepreneurs pitch their ideas to savvy business investors.
