MeliBio makes real honey without bees and by leveraging the power of plant biology, precision fermentation and food science. The food-tech company's bee-free honey was the spotlight of an exclusive World Bee Day celebration held at the three-Michelin star Eleven Madison Park in New York and it welcomed guests into an intimate cocktail reception and four-course lunch.
Attendees included conservation leaders, investors, government officials and creators, and they were treated to an experience focused on spreading awareness for World Bee Day. From fava bean falafels to roasted artichokes, the elaborate, multi-course lunch prepared by Eleven Madison Park chefs showed that animal-free honey delivers on taste, nutrition, and applications in high-end food and beverage formulations.
Beyond this one-off event, MeliBio is continuing to challenge the $10 billion dollar honey industry with a more sustainable way forward.
