Honibe™ - Pure Honey Joy™ Takes on the Dragons on CBC’s Dragons’ Den January 19th
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Charlottetown, PE – January 11, 2011 – Island Abbey Foods Ltd. today announced that their Honibe™ brand of 100% pure dried honey products will be pitched on CBC Television’s popular Dragons’ Den show. Honibe™ will be presented on season 5, episode # 12 airing January 19th, 2011 at 8PM across the country.
The Dragons' Den is where aspiring entrepreneurs pitch their business concepts and products to a panel of Canadian business moguls who have the cash and the know-how to make it happen. The Dragons are venture capitalists that invest their money in promising business ventures that are ready for major growth.
“The Dragons’ Den is a tremendous opportunity to introduce our Honibe™ brand of honey products to a national audience across Canada,” stated John Rowe, President of Island Abbey Foods Ltd. “With almost 2 million viewers every week, it is one of the most popular shows on the CBC. In addition to this incredible exposure, we have the potential to partner with one or more of the Dragons who are some of Canada’s most recognized and successful business people. It is exciting to be able to pitch our, first of their kind, honey products in front of the Dragons to see if they see the same growth potential in our company as we do. I hope they like honey!”
The Honibe™ brand has received major international recognition in recent months with the Honey Drop™, named as the Global SIAL d’Or Winner 2010 for the best new food product in the world. 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.
In addition to the Honey Drop™, we also offer Honey Delights™: the world’s first 100% pure honey candies, Honey Sprinkles™: granular honey for desserts, baking, ingredient use and more, as well as, the world’s first pure Honey Lozenges™ with natural therapeutic ingredients.
