NATURAL AMERICAN FOODS has invested to build one of the most robust supply chain teams in the industry. Our network of buyers has developed relationships across the globe to ensure superior honey supply and product quality. This allows for supply chain transparency, traceability and consistent quality of our products.
Closer to the Hive
The U.S. honey industry is global by necessity, since national demand has exceeded the supply that can be provided by American honey bees. In fact, nearly three-quarters of the honey consumed in the United States is sourced from beekeepers internationally. NATURAL AMERICAN FOODS is a leader in global direct sourcing, and has direct relationships with key suppliers to foster the highest level of confidence in traceability standards. A shorter supply chain ensures superior traceability and brings our customers one step closer to the hive.
We source quality food ingredient products from farms and producers all over the world. Our extensive sourcing and transportation experience has made us a trusted partner of customers across the U.S. Meeting unique customer needs, adapting to the seasons, and knowing where to find the best quality products at any given time is our specialty. This allows us to deliver everything from bulk commodities to proprietary products – ensuring you get the best honey on the planet.
The Truth Is In The Pollen
Pollen is a fine powdery substance consisting of microscopic particles that are used by plants to reproduce.
Pollen may be small, but the fact that major companies are removing nearly all traces of it from their honey is a big deal. In addition to providing essential nutrients and amino acids, naturally-occurring pollen can authenticate country-of-origin and floral source claims.
At NATURAL AMERICAN FOODS, we retain the natural pollen in honey throughout our entire supply chain to provide our customers with natural, superior traceability from the hive to the home.
Follow The Trail
Imports account for more than 70% of honey consumed in the U.S., making it vital that your honey supplier has a firm grasp of global market conditions. NATURAL AMERICAN FOODS has placed employees around the world to build relationships directly with key suppliers and beekeeping operations, which provides us – and our customers – with market insights that go beyond just color and price. As our customer, you can rely on a year-round supply of honey complete with naturally-present pollen to verify floral source and proof of origin.
