MeliBio’s Mellody Unveils Spicy Habanero, Expanding Plant-Based Honey Range

Mellody, a plant-based honey brand under the umbrella of MeliBio, has introduced Spicy Habanero, a new addition to its lineup. This month, the product will be showcased at the National Products Expo West in California and the International Pizza Expo in Las Vegas.

“There are even more possibilities for further innovation that our technology can unlock”

According to the company, plant-based hot honey is the first vegan hot honey available on the market and will join Mellody’s inaugural product, Golden Clover Plant-Based Honey, launched exclusively for food service last year. The product made its debut at Eleven Madison Home in New York and has since expanded its availability across the United States and in select international markets.

MeliBio, Inc., the sole owner of Mellody, has positioned itself as a leader in the market for bee-free honey production. The company leverages advanced culinary techniques, plant science, and fermentation processes to create alternatives that match traditional honey’s taste, quality, and nutritional value.

Beyond sweet applications

CEO and co-founder of MeliBio, Darko Mandich, states, “With the launch of Mellody Spicy Habanero, we’re taking our plant-based honey beyond sweet applications. Our first Golden Clover release has been game-changing for the honey industry, and there are even more possibilities for further innovation that our technology can unlock, starting with taste and functionality.”

Currently, Mellody products can be found through e-commerce platforms, including Webstaurantstore and Vegan Distribution, and at select US restaurants such as Eleven Madison Home, Gracias Madre, Besties Vegan Paradise, and The Butcher’s Daughter. In the European Union and the United Kingdom, MeliBio’s products are available under the brand names JustVeg Vegan Hanny and Better Foodie Vegan H*ney, respectively.

Mandich continues, “Our customers are foodies, professional chefs, and conscious consumers who’ve been craving a more ethical and sustainable way to enjoy honey for a long time. Their response has made it clear that they love our products, with an appetite for more options.”
