Giant bees or Apis Dorsata make new beehive every year and wild honey gathering becomes a very sustainable activity for the villagers in Kuansing.
Knowing exactly where each honey variant originates is important when it comes to assessing quality and authenticity. We partner with a selection of small apiaries to deliver high-quality forest honey from Kuansing. This means there is no polluted road or chemically-fertilized field around our bee hives. We believe that the clearer the air, the purer the honey.
