Delicious honey harvested from the forests of Ethiopia: a delicacy sourced from Africa and packaged in Japan for Canadian lifestyle shop and gallery Mjölk.
Ethiopia is a global leader in honey production, and honey has held a place in Ethiopia’s culture and history for many years. This honey was sourced using traditional harvesting techniques. Ethiopian honey is some of the best in the world and is considered to be “liquid gold” in some circles, sustaining hundreds of local harvesters and providing a skill for families to pass down through the generations.
