Healthcare company HoneyLab is close to taking its operations global reports co-founder Dr Shaun Holt. The company’s kānuka honey jell, Honevo, was recently proven in a study to be as effective as pharmaceuticals. The product, which has also been proven effective in treating rosacea, is now gaining international attention. Holt recently arrived back in the country from the United States having multiple meetings regarding interest in the product. The company’s success has been a long time coming as Hold expresses that it was never easy to sell a product containing honey. He also commented that not all his products have taken off like Honevo, and with drug development costing around US$1 billion, it has not been the easiest of times. It was also reported that cannabis could prove to be dominant medicine in the future when laws are created for its use.
