THE CARBON FOOTPRINT OF HONEY

CO2e_200GThe CO2e-label on our Finnish Floral Honey and Finnish Traditional Crystallized Honey tubs indicates the climate impact of the honey. When calculating this so-called carbon footprint, the entire production chain has been taken into account, from primary production to shop shelves. The carbon footprint of honey is 125 grams per 100 grams of the product in a 450g tub, and 130 grams per 100 grams of the product in a 200g tub. The colour-code calculator clearly indicates the carbon footprint of honey as green, which shows that honey is a very low-emission product.

The carbon footprint of Finnish Floral Honey and Finnish Traditional Crystallized Honey is 125 grams per 100 grams of the product in a 450g tub, and 130 grams per 100 grams of the product in a 200g tub.

The CO2e-calculator that is used for foodstuffs has been developed by Raisio plc. With the easy colour-code system, the calculator shows the impact level of the carbon footprint of the product: green shades indicate a low-emission product, whereas yellow to orange shades indicate a bigger carbon footprint. We first started using this carbon-footprint label that was developed by Raisio in the summer of 2010 with our best-known product Finnish Floral Honey.  With the chart below, you will see how the various stages of production affect carbon-footprint generation.

Use the chart below to get acquainted with the impact of the various stages of production.
