BAL.HONEY was launched by Jana and Saaly, two finance professionals and health enthusiasts. The initial idea came to life when we visited the Kyrgyz Republic for the first time and we fell in love with the untouched nature while exploring the mountains and alpine lakes. We were introduced to Kyrgyz honey sold by local beekeepers along the mountain roads. Unique in taste and colour, white honey was a real surprise to both of us.
Four years later, we decided to leave the corporate world and start our own business. After spending what seems like an age thinking of the right product, we soon realised that raw Kyrgyz honey was exactly what we were looking for.
It helped that Saaly is from the Kyrgyz Republic as we had a great advantage in establishing the supply from the local beekeepers and bringing honey to the UK and to the whole of Europe. After many, really boring, days and nights studying various EU regulations, our first shipment was on the way….though it wasn’t all plain sailing!!
In December 2018, we launched our website and we were really surprised by the amount of orders and messages we received via social media.
The most important factor has always been to provide value to our customers. We truly want each and every customer to enjoy this amazing honey at an affordable price.
Our challenge remains bringing more awareness about the pristine nature of the Kyrgyz republic, country which still remains, in our opinion, an undiscovered gem to many people. We want our customers to experience our unique honey, which is full of vitamins and minerals, and is harvested at 2,700 metres above sea level.
