GloryBee, a family owned and operated provider of all-natural honey, sweeteners, spices, dried fruits, nuts and oils, will debut a variety of new products under its two brands, GloryBee Honey and Aunt Patty’s, at the upcoming Natural Products Expo West trade show. GloryBee will introduce five new raw honey flavors, and Aunt Patty’s adds two new cooking oils and a syrup. Sales of all eight products will support the brands’ two social initiatives, Save the Bee, for GloryBee, and Food for Health, for Aunt Patty’s.
“Since 1975, we have sourced and provided natural and organic ingredients to help people live a healthy lifestyle,” said RaeJean Wilson, vice president of stewardship and brand alignment. “The new products not only extend the partnership we have with our customers by expanding our offerings and continuing to provide high quality products they can trust, but also provide them with new ways to support a healthier planet.”
GloryBee’s new honey flavors are all raw, meaning the honey has not been heated above 115o Fahrenheit, pasteurized or processed in any way. Raw honey contains bee pollen, natural vitamins, enzymes and antioxidants. The new GloryBee raw honey flavors include the following:
- Raw California Orange Blossom – Made in flowering California orange groves, this honey has a fruity and sweet citrus flavor, company officials say. Can be enjoyed over yogurt or as a salad dressing ingredient. MSRP: $11.50 for 18-ounces

In addition to the debut of the new raw honey flavors, GloryBee will introduce a new look at Expo West. The brand’s new logo, which is intended to better represent the essence of GloryBee, features an image of a bee as a focal point. The new look will be carried across the packaging for all GloryBee product lines, including jars, bear bottles, HoneyStix and natural supplements. The new imagery will also be applied to all digital elements, including the GloryBee website.
