Keeping People Well by Keeping It Real.
Hi. My name is Alan Bougen. I founded Comvita with Claude Stratford in 1974. Over the next few months I would like to share with you my Comvita journey so far. Happy reading and please pop back soon for the next chapter. Cheers Alan.
Chapter 5: One of the core values Claude and I shared right from the beginning is the importance of keeping our products as natural and as unrefined as possible. From our roots in beekeeping we had a very clear picture of raw honey as being the only real honey. As beekeepers, we knew that that the only way to produce real honey was to treat it in the most respectful way, right from the hive to our customers.
Our honey is raw and as close to nature as we can get it. From the way it is extracted to the way it is filtered, processed and packaged, Comvita® has carefully and passionately pioneered the special process of producing raw honey fit for the most discerning of “purists”. But the way we produce our honey is just one example of the fundamental principle behind our approach. We strive to do this for all of our products. We try hard to make sure our processes mimic nature. It’s that simple.
The result? An array of quality products made by nature that maintain all the nutrients and micronutrients that nature so cleverly provides. A pretty sweet deal really – for both you and the planet.
