GloryBee has a longstanding relationship with our organic royal jelly supplier. Like every other domestic supplier of royal jelly, GloryBee sources its organic Royal Jelly from China. Unlike every other supplier, we believe that our customers should know this information up front. We source organic royal jelly from the rural remote areas of the Anhui, Hebei, Shandong provinces of mainland China where beekeepers have been producing organic royal jelly for decades. Many of the families we source our royal jelly from have been keeping bees for three generations or more. As the senior beekeeper retires, children are taking over the business and continuing to grow and establish larger colonies. We fully trust the quality of our product and test each batch of organic royal jelly to ensure freshness, potency, and to ensure there are no prohibited substances
One of the hidden secrets of the royal jelly industry is that 99% of royal jelly comes from China because there is very little royal jelly production in the United States or other countries. The United States beekeeping industry is geared toward honey production and pollination. Because royal jelly is difficult to produce and requires a large number of strong colonies to be an effective business, few domestic beekeepers pursue royal jelly production.

Unfortunately, some beekeepers in China have severely damaged the reputation of China’s otherwise strong beekeeping industry. There have been reports in the past where beekeepers used prohibited antibiotics or somehow adulterated or diluted royal jelly to lower their costs. Every batch of organic royal jelly GloryBee imports is tested for potency and for prohibited substances. Due to our longstanding relationship with our supplier, we can guarantee that they utilize quality harvesting practices and produce only the highest quality royal jelly so you can be confident in what you’re buying.
