Transparency and Traceability
GloryBee believes it is critical to ensure that the honey we import is ethically and legally sourced in a transparent and traceable manner.
True Source Certification verifies the country of origin on all GloryBee honey. Each flower species has a unique pollen grain, and all honey contains trace amounts of pollen which can be used to determine its major floral sources and geographical origin. Through DNA testing of the pollen in honey, True Source confirms its origin and floral sources.
An independent 3rd party audit firm then tracks the honey from the beekeeper that harvests it, to the distributor that exports it, and confirms full compliance with U.S. and international trade laws.
True Source Certification protects the viability of commercial beekeeping in the U.S. which is essential for pollination of the food we eat.
