Mileeven to date has won twelve Great Taste Awards, since 1999. a number of products have also made it through to the Championship rounds in London.
In August 2007 we were also presented with the prestigious SHOP Award for “Overall innovation product of the show” for our range of honey spreads.
Many of these awards are fought for by large multi national companies and so it is a great honour for a small Irish company like ourselves to gain such outside recognition.
Some interesting facts about honeybees

A bees wings 11,400 times per minute
Bees have hair on their eyes
Bees are responsible for pollinating about 80% of the fruit & veg crops in the US
Bees communicate through the "waggle dance" which tells other bees of the direction and distance of a good nectar source
To make 1 pound of honey takes a visit to 2 million flowers and to fly over 55,000 miles
