MCKINNEY, TEXAS – March 29, 2021 – Nature Nate’s Honey Co., the number-one branded honey company in the U.S. and producer of 100% Pure, Raw & Unfiltered Honey, announces today that it will be the lead sponsor of the Honey Symposium developed by The Honey and Pollination Center located in the Robert Mondavi Institute at UC Davis and Michael Roberts from Resnick Center for Food Law & Policy at UCLA. The program, to be held on April 22, 2021, will focus on understanding how honey adulteration affects beekeepers, honey production and ultimately, our food system.

“At Nature Nate’s we are deeply passionate about promoting responsible beekeeping practices and protecting honey bee health, which is why we are honored to work with our university partners at the UC Davis Honey Pollination Center to sponsor this important program,” said Nathan Sheets, Founder and CEO, Nature Nate’s. “Through our Long Live the Bees initiative, we invest in key programs that keep hives healthy and bee populations thriving, so everyone can enjoy the unadulterated goodness of real, pure honey.”

The thought-leadership symposium will feature a keynote address by Michael Roberts from the Resnick Center for Food Law & Policy at UCLA. Roberts has written papers for the United Nations and the U.S. Government concerning food fraud and honey adulteration. In addition, the program will be geared toward educating specialty food retailers that actively educate their consumers. Five retailers will discuss the ways in which they educate their customers.

Additional speakers include:

  • Grace Singleton, Zingerman’s
  • Danielle Vogel, Glen’s Garden Farmer’s Market
  • Amelia Rappaport, Woodstock Farmers’ Market
  • Raph Mogannum, Bi-Rite Family of Foods
  • Kendall Antonelli, Antonelli’s Cheese Shop

In addition, Chris Hiatt, vice president of the American Honey Producers Association and third-generation beekeeper at Hiatt Honey in California, will address the way the U.S. government is working with beekeepers on the issue of adulteration. A long-term family beekeeper, yet to be confirmed, will cover how beekeeping has changed over the years and through generations.

Insights presented will help attendees better understand how to source, promote and sell top-quality honey.
