National Honey Board Offers Promotional Items to Industry Members

Firestone, Colo., March 11, 2013 – The National Honey Board (NHB) announced that it has produced three new promotional items that are available for purchase.

The promotional items were created to showcase honey’s versatility. The NHB focused on items that would span some of honey’s many applications, including culinary, beauty and more. The items also feature the Honey ONE logo, to remind people that honey is just one ingredient, the way nature intended.

The items available include a black polyester foldaway tote bag that’s perfect for the grocery store or farmer’s market. The tote folds into a carrying pouch with drawstring and has 18″ shoulder straps. Next is an all-silicone spoon that is ideal for stirring pasta, soups, sauces and more and is 11-1/8″ x 2-3/16″ x 11/16″ in size. The longer handle keeps your hands further away from the heat to help prevent steam burns. Finally, for the first time ever, the NHB is offering their signature honey and vanilla lip balm. This formula is specially created for the NHB and is made from all-natural ingredients, including honey and beeswax.

“We are pleased to offer these promotional items to the honey industry,” said Catherine Barry, Marketing Director at the National Honey Board. “These items are a continuation of our effort to provide materials to the industry to help promote honey. With items that are useful for everyday life, we hope that people will enjoy using them and they’ll continue to utilize honey throughout their day.”

These promotional items will be available to industry members for $3.50, $3.00 and $0.75 respectively. To purchase one or all the items, please call Andrea Brening, the National Honey Board’s fulfillment coordinator at 800-553-7162.

The National Honey Board is a federal research and promotion board under USDA oversight that conducts research, marketing and promotion programs to help maintain and expand markets for honey and honey products. These programs are funded by an assessment of one cent per pound on domestic and imported honey.
