U.S. Group Forms to Promote Health Benefits of Honey

A group of American beekeepers, scientific experts and honey packers, producers and importers recently formed the “Committee for the Promotion of Honey and Health in America.”

Part of the committee’s mission is to enhance the image of honey by incorporating contemporary scientific and medical information about the role that honey can play in the human diet and its positive effect on human health. It will also seek to maintain an international perspective regarding support for both standards and research on honey’s health benefits.

The committee plans to publish a series of articles highlighting those benefits, create a speakers bureau and organize an international symposium to address the topic of honey and health from a scientific perspective.

Anyone who would like to support the efforts of the committee should contact Ron Phipps at or Ron Fessendon at or by calling 713-865-3145.
