'Bee Movie' Honey Produced11 Mar, 2008 By: Billy Gil
Paramount Home Entertainment and DreamWorks Animation March 11 released Bee Movie, starring the voice of Jerry Seinfeld as Barry Bee. Golden Heritage Foods is piggybacking on the DVD release with a Bee Movie-branded, Barry Bee-shaped honey bottle.
The two-ounce honey bottle is available at such retailers as Wal-Mart, Safeway and other grocery stores. Licensed by DreamWorks to make Bee Movie-related honey products, Hillsboro, Kan.-based Golden Heritage Foods has honey packaging plants in Kansas and Ohio, and distributes products nationwide under various brand names.
“It's very exciting to offer consumers a whole new convenient way to use honey,” said Dwight Stoller, CEO of Golden Heritage Foods. “No other honey company in the nation produces a bottle like Barry.”
