Paris, France, SIAL 2010 - Island Abbey Foods Ltd. today announced the Honibe™ Honey Drop™ has been named as the winner of the Global SIAL d’Or from the world’s largest food tradeshow in Paris, France. The Honey Drop™ was also named as best new product 2010 in the “Sweet – Grocery” category and was the winner of the “Country Award - Canada” as the highest scoring Canadian product for 2010 in the preshow awards in May. 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 Global SIAL d’Or is awarded for the best new food product to come to market in the last two years. The selection was made from a product field of over 250 of the world’s best new food 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.

“The Global SIAL d’Or recognizes the best new food product to come to market in the last two years. To be nominated for this prestigious award was outstanding, but to actually win the Global SIAL d’Or for our Honibe™ Honey Drop™ is simply a phenomenal accomplishment,” stated John Rowe, President of Island Abbey Foods Ltd. “The SIAL d’Or Awards are like the Oscars of the food world and the Global SIAL d’Or is the overall gold medal that everyone is vying to win. To win this award is very surprising and exciting. It acknowledges, on a global scale, the true innovation of our Honey Drop™ and the technology we use to create a 100% pure dried honey cube with no additives or preservatives of any kind.”

The Honey Drop™ comes in two flavours: pure honey and pure honey with lemon. The Honey Drop™ comes in boxes of 20 pieces. The Honey Drop™ is only 20 calories, has a shelf life of three years, and does not contain any artificial colouring, flavouring, or preservatives.
