ABOUT THE honeybush business opportunity

Honeybush Business OpportunityThe partner company is currently launching a proposed Honeybush Cultivation Development Project in the Western- & Eastern Cape, South Africa, an area with unimaginable potential and untouched natural resources, including availability to sufficient clean water. In general, Honeybush grows naturally in only one area on the entire Globe namely the land from Agulhas to Port Elizabeth.

The company will initially boast three different profit centres which include: Agricultural, Nursery and a Processing Plant, each of them with their own significant profit characteristics. The Processing Plant is a priority as current Plants in the area cannot cope, therefore a phased-in approach could be followed with regards to the below mentioned Investment required starting with Processing, then Farming and eventually own Nurseries as well.

The profit centres will be fused together to create a truly unique and inspiring business model. In addition, the company has a vision of utilising a term “from-seed-to-shelf” made possible by the conglomerate created within the proposed model. Two crucial aspects namely ‘Source of product to be harvested’ (specific Farmers with current crops) and ‘Markets’ (LOI’s with Buyers and Distributers globally) have already been secured.


With regards to the agricultural industry in the Western Cape, Honeybush has a clear competitive advantage, two of them being ‘scarcity’ and the ‘uniqueness’ of the Honeybush plant itself. The Honeybush plant can and will only grow within the parameters mentioned above resulting in a proudly South African product/ resource. Nonetheless, the largest market for Honeybush is undoubtedly positioned within the international market. The partner company will, according to its vision, export 80% of the harvested Honeybush, with Germany (55.02%) and the United States of America (18.76%) currently being the biggest importers of Honeybush.

The vision of the company is to be the leading Honeybush producer in the world, while forming and pioneering an Industry.
The mission is to use the uniqueness of South African soil to create sustainable commercial Honeybush farming practices, construct entrepreneurial opportunities and develop agricultural-processing while consolidating and organising an industry to become the leading global player. Current 1400 jobs expected to increase fourfold (400%) in future.

The smart money will position their Honeybush products within major food and beverage trends as a specialty health product, and then diversify into things like ice-tea, green tea and baby products.  

In the international herbal tea category, South African Honeybush shows huge potential with zero competition from other countries. South African buyers account for approximately 10% of the demand for honeybush tea. 

International demand far exceeds supply, and there is room for significant growth in the industry. Certain Honeybush blends have an international retail value of up to 10 times more than they do on the local market.

Besides the currently known products and uses for Honeybush, there are still several unexplored markets that will emerge as the industry develops. 

This particular Honeybush business opportunity offers endless expansion, with industries such as the nutraceutical – and pharmaceutical industry, cosmetics industry and the food and beverage industry, expanding product ranges directly related to Honeybush. Worth mentioning is the global issue around diabetes and other sugar-related illnesses, where Honeybush can be used as a healthy alternative to sugar. Honeybush is 8x sweeter than conventional sugar and/or xylitol.
