Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:
John Rowe’s company Island Abbey Foods sells an entire lineup of freeze-dried honey products.
Like many honey lovers, he found himself wishing one of his favourite food wasn’t always so sticky and messy. He was particularly upset when a jar of honey he had carefully packed for a camping trip broke in his knapsack and produced a mess.
Most of us probably would have said that was a life lesson about how to store honey and moved on. For the engineer from rural PEI, it became a challenge to be overcome that he quickly turned into a business opportunity.
It took him almost 10 years of research, but by 2008 the era of sticky honey was over as far as he was concerned. He developed a now patented process for a dried, non-sticky honey that could easily be carried in a pocket or purse – two places no honey had ever gone before, at least not intentionally.
