Organic Zambian Honey From Marks And Spencer

I don’t usually buy speciality honey, but when I saw it was a similar price to an English meadow honey, I thought why not!

This picture shows the jar.

It comes from the Mwinilunga Forest, where this Wikipedia entry for the Economy of the town of Mwinilunga says this.

Forest Fruits Limited has been operating in Mwinilunga since 1998, successfully working with over 7,000 beekeepers in the region to export organic honey to the European market. The company also employs about 100 staff.

This is said on the side of the jar.

Supporting family incomes of bark hive village beekeepers, the diverse forest gives this honey a complex rich & smoky flavour.

This picture shows some on toast.

It was certainly one of best honeys, I’ve ever tasted and that includes some local Suffolk honey collected by friends.

  1. When I worked in Zambia the local honey was almost black but very good and reasonably priced. I am glad that it is now exported.

    • It certainly is reasonably priced in Dalston. I wonder if that some strategic thinking, by the computer that dishes out products according to sales. One of my friends has a Nigerian wife and they come to Ridley Road market from Luton to buy specialist African vegetables. I need to look up the price to put it on this post, so I’ll check tomorrow if Moorgate has it in stock!
