About Raw Cape Honey

Theunis Jordaan

Founder / Principal

What started out as a father-son activity, soon became a fully formed business. With all the processed and treated honey in the market and the increasingly awareness of peoples eating habits, Theunis Jordaan saw a opportunity to bring pure raw untreated honey to the shelves. Theunis Jordaan formed Raw Cape Honey in 2012 with a primary focus on bottling raw quality honey. With the business expanding Theunis invested in placing hives on wider spread floral sources. Being on both sides of the production line he was able to move his hives to the variety of honey he wished. Living in the mother city, Cape Town, he is exposed to a wide range of floral beauty. Theunis is dedicated to quality and strives to make the public more aware of what they eat.



The Story behind our Honey

Raw Cape Honey is based in the Cape Town, South Africa. Having the pleasure of being hands on in beekeeping, harvesting and the bottling of honey, we are fortunate to know exactly where our honey comes from and able to call our honey raw.



Raw honey comes straight from the wax combs the bees place it in. Raw honey possesses proteins, vitamins, bee pollen and antioxidants that are considered to be good for your health.


At Raw Cape Honey we do not filter, but strain the raw honey in a warm climate temperature to remove the bigger wax bits and bee parts. After being strained, the honey sits in a settling tank before it is bottled in our various forms of packaging.

We supply bottled raw honey to deli's, markets, biltong stores, gift and health shops in and around the city of Cape Town.
