To satisfy our health-conscious consumers, we deal with various kinds of raw honey imported from countries around the world.

Argentine honey

Harvested mainly from alfalfa flowers grown in the vast pastures of La Pampa. Alfalfas, which grow up to knee-level, have small, pretty flowers that produce honey with a subtle cinnamon-like aroma, similar to clover honey. Argentine honey comes with an orange-like sour flavor that suits Japanese tastes very well.

Canadian honey

Canadian honey is harvested mainly from canola flowers grown in Alberta. Its creamy and full-bodied flavor is great for making confectionaries.

Romanian honey

A mellow honey harvested mainly from acacia and linden (horse chestnut) flowers grown in Transylvania. Romanian honey is smoother than honey produced in other countries and is reminiscent of Japanese honey, bringing feelings of nostalgia to Japanese people.

Ukrainian honey

Ukraine is the second-largest honey-producing country in the world, making 85,000 tons annually. Its honey is harvested from acacias, lindens and sunflowers from early spring through early summer.
The yellow part of the Ukrainian national flag is said to depict the image of sunflowers. Honey harvested from these national flowers comes in a vivid yellow color with a full-bodied flavor.
