For Immediate Release

Charlottetown, PE, Canada – January 13, 2015– Island Abbey Foods, a PEI based natural health product manufacturer, has announced today they are expanding into the vitamin, mineral and supplement category with the launch of the world’s first honey gummies for health: honibe honey gummies™.

“After years of extensive research and product development we are thrilled to be the first to market with an all natural honey-based line of vitamins and supplements for both children and adults. Staying true to our promise, pure Canadian honey is the #1 ingredient in our honey gummy vitamins, thus cutting refined sugar by 50% versus leading brands,” shared Founder and CEO, John Rowe.

“We are committed to helping families have affordable access to high quality vitamins and supplements that can make a real difference in their health. That is why we have worked tirelessly to ensure each of our core products provides a two-month supply of key vitamins and supplements using only natural ingredients and following Health Canada’s guidelines. This positions us as having the best ingredients at the most economical price for consumers,” continued John.

“We are also committed to helping the 30 million people domestically and around the world who do not have access to the basic nutrients they need to live,” said Tasha Richard, Director of Marketing. “That is why we are thrilled to be partnering with Vitamin Angels. For every bottle of our product sold on our website we will donate $0.25 cents to Vitamin Angels. This is enough money to provide one child in need with a year’s supply of Vitamin A.”

“At Vitamin Angels, we believe that reaching at-risk children and mothers with essential vitamins and minerals is critical to giving them the opportunity to survive, thrive and reach their full potential,” said Howard Schiffer, president and founder of Vitamin Angels.  “We are thankful for the support from honibe® and its consumers for their commitment and contributions to our work, especially as our programs expand into Canada.”
