Sialang tree (Koompassia excelsa) is an endemic tree of Bukit Tiga Puluh (30 Hills), Sumatra. This product is part of the collaboration with Partnership for Forests to support forest restoration in Bukit Tigapuluh region of Sumatera. It requires special skill to be able to harvest the honey, as Sialang tree can be as high as 40 meters, and harvesting normally done in group which work collectively. A single tree can have between 10 to 30 bee combs hanging on its branches. Harvesting is done sustainably using traditional methods and rituals, ensuring that a portion of the bee comb still intact to allow sustenance of the bee colonies. We take pride of offering the honey where we will ensure traceability and impact towards the forest sustainability as well as implementation of ethical trade.
