We’re an industry-funded agriculture promotion group that educates consumers about the benefits and uses of honey and honey products. Our research, marketing, and promotional programs are funded by an assessment on domestic and imported honey and are designed to increase awareness and usage of honey by consumers, the foodservice industry, and food manufacturers.
The National Honey Board (NHB), which operates under the U.S. Department of Agriculture oversight, is not a regulatory agency and does not have powers of enforcement. The Board is prohibited from using funds to influence legislation or governmental action or policy.
The NHB is authorized by the Commodity Promotion, Research, and Information Act of 1996 and was established under the rules and regulations of the Honey Packers and Importers Research, Promotion, Consumer Education and Industry Information Order, effective May 2008.
