Bakeries Celebrating National Honey Month


The National Honey Board is celebrating National Month in September with the help of some of the best bakeries in the United States. National Honey Month is an annual celebration of honey, honey bees and this amazing all-natural sweetener.

This year, the National Honey Board is working with four bakeries to promote honey and the importance of honey bees to our ecosystem. Each participating bakery will be featuring special made with honey products in September, as well as set up a sticky station in their bakery, giving customers the ability to top their bakery foods or beverages with three varietals of honey, each with a unique flavor and color. Participating bakeries include:

  • Born & Bread Bakehouse, Lakeland, Florida
  • Gracious Bakery, New Orleans, Louisiana
  • Floriole Bakery & Café, Chicago, Illinois
  • Publican Quality Breads, Chicago, Illinois

In addition to featuring made with honey bakery foods in September, Floriole Bakery & Café and Publican Quality Breads are teaming up with local restaurants Honey Butter Fried Chicken and Bad Hunter to host an event at Floriole Bakery and Café on September 27, 2017. The event will include product tastings, an educational presentation on honey and honey bees, and tastings of varietal honeys from around the United States.

“We’re thrilled that these great bakeries are recognizing the importance of honey and honey bees to creating some exceptional artisan breads and pastries,” Catherine Barry, National Honey Board’s director of marketing, says. “What these bakeries create with honey is inspirational, and we’re excited their customers will get to taste these made with honey products and learn more about the importance of honey bees.”

The National Honey Board (NHB) is an industry-funded agriculture promotion group that works to educate consumers about the benefits and uses for honey and honey products through research, marketing and promotional programs. The Boards work, funded by an assessment on domestic and imported honey, is designed to increase the awareness and usage of honey by consumers, the foodservice industry and food manufacturers. The ten-member-Board, appointed by the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture, represents producers (beekeepers), packers, importers and a marketing cooperative.
