Mileeven was founded in 1988 by Eilis Gough from a hobby of beekeeping. The name comes from “Mil” being the Irish for Honey and “Aoibhinn” (pronounced “even”) meaning delightful and delightful honey is what we do.
Quality and innovation were the focus of the business then and still are today. Based in the rolling hills of Co Kilkenny, Mileeven is now run by Eilis and her daughter, Sarah. As well as Pure Irish honey, Mileeven has a range of single source, raw, unblended honeys from different flowers and regions as well as the innovative Sarah’s Wonderful Honey range of infused honeys. Mileeven has won many awards for quality and innovation and is one of Ireland’s leading honey suppliers.
Mileeven’s target is to ensure that all honey for branded products is sourced from beekeepers who practice ethical beekeeping, putting the health and happiness of the bee first. This helps to ensure the health and sustainability of the bee and quality honey.
Mileeven are working with another verifies Origin Green member to develop a “no added sugar” yogurt with them , using honey as a natural sweetener and a healthier alternative to sugar.
