Mossop's is a family business that was established in 1947 by Ron, Neil’s father. Neil, at the tender age of 16 had several hundred beehives and became self-employed until 1975 when Ron offered him a partnership, this partnership was continued for several years until 1981, when Neil and Wendy bought Ron’s share and formed their own partnership.
Since then Neil and Wendy have improved and grown the business in all areas, increasing turnover 20-fold. Neil and Wendy’s goal is to keep Mossop's honey a family owned business, to keep traditional methods to ensure the highest standard of honey is always produced and to keep the good old fashioned personal, friendly service.
Because they are involved in all aspects of honey production, they have control over the quality and flavour of the honey ‘From the hive to the Honey Pot’. Mossop's use a unique honey processing method developed by father Ronald Mossop in the early 1950’s. As a cheese maker Ron, understood certain processes involving starters and temperatures to achieve a quality product. After some thought and trial applications, he developed a natural granulation method for processing extracted honey that maintains the natural goodness and flavours of the honey.At Mossop's, we pride ourselves in not over-processing, over-stirring, or over-heating, our honey and have customers nationwide and world wide who love our honey because of the wonderful natural flavours maintained through our processing system.
