Zambezi Plains, an organic tropical blossom wildcraft honey from the remote Miombo forests of the Zambezi River from Ogilvy’s Honey has gained the maximum of three gold stars in this year’s Great Taste Awards, and is in the running for the Supreme Champion Award, the winner of which will be announced at the Speciality & Fine Food Fair.
Ogilvy’s Honey, a new range of monofloral and polyfloral honeys discovered from around the world to give consumers a fine flavour experience, has also won Great Taste gold stars for three other varieties this year: Himalayan Highlands, New Zealand Rewarewa and Balkan Linden.
The man behind the brand, with direct relationships with beekeepers, is honey trader, importer and supplier Shamus Ogilvy. He explains: “The time is right for premium honeys to be the next new food experience. We are introducing an extra dimension to a much enjoyed, natural food in the same way as coffee and chocolate pioneers have done in recent years. The sector is ripe for elevation by a brand with the expertise, passion and commitment we have to introduce a whole new world of honey choices backed by traceability, year round supply, reliable distribution and Soil Association organic certification.”
