Jakobsens is approved for organic production of honey by the Ministry of Food, Denmark, according to the regulations of the EU Directive No. 834/2007 from June 28th, 2007.
When producing organic honey, it is important that the beekeepers also comply with regulations in terms of location, feeding, disease control and the quality of the beehives.
Bees move within a radius of up to 3 km from the bee farm. Thus, the regulations on organic honey include the rule that bee farms that produce organic honey, must be located in such a manner that the nectar and pollen sources within a radius of 3 km are of organic origin and/or wild growth. Please refer to the EU Directive No. 834/2007 from June 28th, 2007. for the regulations on organic production.
