Grenada beekeepers win gold award for best honey in the world

The highly coveted Medal of Ukraine, which is awarded to the best honey in the world outside of the British Isles, was won this year by a boutique organic apiary from the Caribbean island of Grenada. The winning beekeepers are environmental scientist Dr. Valma Jessamy and attorney Gerry Edwin. They own and operate Eden Apiaries located at the Grenville Vale Tropical Botanic Garden. “I am stunned,” said Jessamy, when she learned that she had been awarded the prestigious 2015 Gold Medal from among the international competitors, including Mauritius, Oman, Cameroon, Morocco, Canada, Uganda, New Zealand, The Netherlands, the United States and Saudi Arabia. The winning honey was gifted to the head beekeeper at Buckingham Palace. The first Medal of Ukraine went to Mauritius in 2010, the second was not awarded and the third was won by honey from the Royal Apiaries of Oman. Eden Apiaries is the fourth winner of the Medal and the first from the Caribbean region.
