The certified organic honey comes from the Apis Cerena honeybee indigenous to the high himalayas of the Uttarakhand state of India. The area is famous for rich floral diversity. The valleys are filled with medicinal mustard and amaranth and the alpine meadows are free of pollution. The beehives include wall hives, log hives and wooden bee boxes that are kept in the high mountain villages.
The organic honey is truly free of pesticides and other chemicals. It was the first honey in India to be certified organic in 1996. Organic certification is awarded by the Uttarakhand Organic Certification Agency (USOCA).
