Grenada honey is the bee’s knees

BeeLONDON, England – At the 84th National Honey Show here, the highly coveted Medal of Ukraine, awarded to the best honey in the world outside of the British Isles, was won this year by Eden Apiaries, a boutique organic apiary from the Caribbean island of Grenada.
The winning beekeepers are environmental scientist Dr. Valma Jessamy and Jerry Edwin, an attorney. They own and operate Eden Apiaries located at the Grenville Vale Tropical Botanic Garden.
The international beekeepers at the 2015 NHS were from Mauritius, Oman, Cameroon, Morocco, Canada, Uganda, New Zealand, The Netherlands, the U.S. and Saudi Arabia among other countries.
The first Medal of Ukraine went to Mauritius in 2010, the second was not awarded and the third was won by honey from the Royal Apiaries of Oman. Eden Apiaries is the fourth winner of the Medal and the first from the Caribbean region.
The National Honey show is held in London every October and continues the tradition established back in 1923. It’s the oldest most sophisticated and the most rigorous beekeeping contest in the world.
