Wednesday, May 19th, 2010 - The Honey Pantry
Melbourne, Vic, Australia – The Honey Pantry is extremely excited and proud to announce that the Honibe™ – Honey Drop™ has been named as world’s best new product 2010 in the “Grocery – Sweet” category at the SIAL d’Or Awards in Paris, France. The Honey Drop™ also won the “Country Award - Canada” as the highest scoring Canadian product for 2010. As a result of the company’s high scores, the Honey Drop™ is one of nine finalists in the running for overall SIAL d’Or Winner 2010 for the best new food product in the world.

The Honey Drop™ is the world’s first 100% pure dried honey cube for sweetening tea and coffee.
SIAL (Salon International de l'Alimentation) is the world’s largest food tradeshow. The SIAL d'Or Awards recognizes nine of the world’s most innovative and successful new-product launches that came to market after November of 2008.

The SIAL d'Or Awards are judged by a panel that is comprised of 30 judges from 30 different countries. The nine finalists were chosen from a product field of over 250 of the world’s best new products.

The Honey Drop™ solves a common problem: liquid honey can be messy. The Honey Drop™ is an individual serving (one teaspoon / 5 g.) of 100% pure dried honey without any additives. It is ideal for sweetening tea or coffee. Simply drop into a hot beverage and stir. You have all of the natural honey flavour without the usual honey mess.

“To win the SIAL d'Or ‘Country Award’ for Canada with our Honey Drop™ as the highest scoring product from Canada was beyond our expectations,” stated John Rowe, President of Island Abbey Foods Ltd. “To then be named best product in the ‘Grocery – Sweet’ category is a phenomenal accomplishment! We are ecstatic to be representing Canada at SIAL 2010 this fall as one of only nine finalists competing for the title of best new food product in the world.”
The Honey Drop™ comes in two flavours: pure honey and pure honey and lemon.

The Honey Drop™ is available in packages of 20 units for retail sale or in bulk for food service. The Honey Drop™ has a shelf life of one year and does not contain any artificial colouring, flavouring, or preservatives. The Honey Drop™ is an all natural product of Prince Edward Island, Canada and manufactured by Island Abbey Foods Ltd.
