Jakobsens acquire honey and agave syrup from all over the world. The honey is delivered in barrels and containers. In order to ensure traceability, the honey is marked with a clear identification number. At the same time, we take samples of the honey for analyses and sensory tests.
Texture, taste and smell are evaluated upon pouring - vital parametres that determine the pending process.
Then, we filter and stir the solid honey, in order to make the texture spreadable, while the fluent honey is treated as carefully as possible upon filtration, in order to avoid premature crystallisation. All bottling lines are covered between bottling and capping.
Processing and bottling of the honey is handled by competent employees, who are extremely knowledgeable in terms of beekeeping and the production of honey. The production apparatus is automated and flexible and has a total daily bottling capacity of approx. 30 tonnes. However, it takes skill, knowledge and care to ensure a uniform natural product in every bottle.
In 2012, Jakobsens invested in a new fully automatic bottling plant for squeeze bottles. The bottling plant has a total capacity that matches the demands of even our biggest customers. In 2013, we invested in a new packing facility for single portion honey.
Until shipping, the honey is stored under optimal conditions in a temperature controlled final product warehouse. In 2014, a new warehouse and production facility of 2000 m2 was added to the existing building.
