We've Been Certified Organic By Soil Association!

At Honey and greens, we've always strived to deliver the purest, most natural honey possible. We're thrilled to announce that we've taken this commitment a step further by achieving Soil Association Certification!

This accreditation signifies that our honey production adheres to the highest organic and sustainable standards set by the UK's leading organic certification body. Simply put, the Soil Association symbol on our honey jars is your guarantee that you're getting pure, delicious honey produced with utmost care for the environment and the hardworking bees that make it all possible.

Why Soil Association?

The Soil Association is the UK's leading organic certification body. Founded in 1946, it has a long and distinguished history of promoting organic food and farming practices. Their mission goes beyond simply ensuring organic ingredients. They actively work to promote sustainable agriculture, protect the delicate balance of biodiversity, and ensure high animal welfare standards. So by choosing Soil Association-certified products like our honey, you're not just getting a delicious treat, you're also actively supporting these critical efforts.


How Certification Works

Earning Soil Association Certification isn't easy. It involves an all-round inspection of our entire supply chain, from beekeeping practices to bottling and labeling. Here are some key aspects the certification validates: 

  • Sustainably Sourced Organic Ingredients: Our honey comes from ethically managed apiaries where bees can thrive in healthy, natural environments. We use organic farming methods that avoid harmful pesticides and synthetic fertilizers, ensuring the purity and quality of our honey.
  • Using Natural Colors and Fragrances: Forget artificial additives. We rely solely on nature's bounty for the subtle colors and delightful aromas found in our honey. This means you're getting a truly authentic taste experience, free from any chemical aftertaste.
  • Transparent Manufacturing Processes: We believe in openness and honesty. Our Soil Association certification guarantees complete transparency throughout our manufacturing process, from honey extraction to bottling. You can rest assured that you're getting exactly what's listed on the label, with nothing hidden.
  • Biodegradable Ingredients: Honey is a naturally sustainable product. By partnering with the Soil Association, we're further committed to using biodegradable materials wherever possible. This helps minimize our environmental footprint and protects the planet for future generations of bees and honey lovers.
  • Minimal Packaging with Maximum Recycled Content: We know packaging is important, but we also prioritize sustainability. Our Soil Association certification ensures we use minimal packaging while maximizing the use of recycled materials. That’s a win-win for your pantry and the planet.
  • Protecting Wildlife and Biodiversity: Healthy bee populations are essential for a thriving ecosystem. By supporting organic beekeeping practices, we play a vital role in protecting bees, other pollinators, and the delicate balance of nature. 

Soil Association certification goes beyond simply saying "yes" to good things. It also means saying "no" to harmful practices. This translates to absolutely no pesticides or chemicals used in our honey production or throughout our supply chain. Our honey is pure, unadulterated, and safe for you and your family.
