Our sweet story

Joseph, Chris and Charles started Swahili Honey in 2015 with strong values to produce high quality honey and support Tanzania’s rural beekeepers.

We are proud to continue our tradition and we couldn't have sone that without our valuable customers. With their support we have grown a number of our rural beekeepers to more than 700, and enabling us to keep doing what we love - bringing to market a world-class, ethically sourced, delicious and pure 100% Tanzanian honey.

Proudly Tanzanian owned, Swahili Honey has a long held commitment to quality control and assurance, product innovation and driving consumer awareness and consumption of honey.

Swahili Honey passionately cares about our bees and their hard work to make this amazing sweetness. That is why we have chosen to put the honey drop at the centre of our brandmark, that Swahili Honey will handle every honey drop produced with love and care.

Why We are the Best?

Highest and consistent quality control of entire value chain from production to the table. Our honey is fully traceable, means we know where it comes from, who is the beekeeper, extraction process and distribution.

A mutual rewarding business relationship with our hardworking rural beekeepers and their families who entrust their products to us.

We cares about our bees and their hard work to make this amaizing sweetness, and we promise to handle every drop of honey they produce. That’s why we have chosen to put the honey drop at the centre of our brandmark, that swahili honey will handle every drop of honey produced with love and care.

Our Farmers testimonial

I have been a beekeeper for more than 15 years and I walk by foot almost 15kms into the bush to harvest my log hives. I met Joseph in 2015 when I was selling my honey on the roadside. Now I have access to a reliable market.

Rashid Juma (Itigi, Singida)

I have never seen a beehive colonized in just a week and you start getting honey within 3 - 4 months. The new technology which Swahili Honey has brought to us is unbelievable.

Mzee Kangombai (Mbuyuni, Masasi)

Natural Goodness and best of all honey in Tanzania, it tastes great and it offers consistency in quality. It is the most wonderful honey I have never test before. Try Swahili Honey today!
