Green Bay Harvest is an independent, family-run UK business specialising in the supply of organic functional foods. I founded the company in 2005 because I wanted to increase awareness and use of foods with remarkable nutritional and health benefits as part of our daily diets.
We source our ingredients as much as possible from our friends and contacts who are organic pioneers in their field and we take time to build personal relationships with our growers and harvesters to learn all we can about the origin and production processes of our foods. We are proud of our producers' skills and knowledge and our partnership with them. Together we make every effort to ensure that our foods reach customers in their optimal nutritional state.
Organically produced food tastes better, we feel, and so we are delighted that our foods are certified organic by the Soil Association. While we love local food and are committed to reducing our company's carbon footprint where possible, we have chosen to import our products because their unique nutritional credentials are simply not available elsewhere in the world.
We don't use air freight unless we must: instead we ship our products by sea, which means long distances but low carbon generation. The use attractively labelled cardboard drums and glass jars to preserve the goodness of our products and endeavour to optimise re-use, reduction and recycling in all our packaging.
As a mother to four young children, I know that a diet rich in unprocessed whole foods keeps my family healthy and happy. Experience has shown me that complementing a few meals and snacks with nature's 'wonderfoods' - such as green barley leaf and Manuka honey - is a very convenient way of getting goodness into our bodies.
Understanding Activity Levels of Manuka Honey - avoid an activity level that is too high - If you see a Manuka Honey for sale with a high activity score (above 15+) you should ask to see the lab certificate for the honey and check that the peroxide activity hasn't been combined with the NPA rating.
Don't go too low - Remember that all clinical and academic research into manuka honey shows that honey with a genuine activity score below 8+ has no proven therapeutic benefits.
The ‘Goldilocks’ activity score is 10+ to 15+. All the amazing research about manuka honey has been conducted with 10+ Manuka Honey or above.
