Capilano launches Hot Chilli Honey

Responding to Australians’ love of hot and spicy foods, Capilano has launched a Hot Chilli Honey ideal for drizzling over pizza, wings, ribs, burgers, or adding a creative twist to avocado toast.

This innovative creation is set to redefine honey’s role in home cooking, establishing it as a “must-have” staple for condiment lovers.

Capilano Hot Chilli Honey combines 100% Pure Australian Honey from Capilano’s network of 800+ Aussie beekeepers, with savoury, spicy flecks of habanero chilli to create a savoury-style honey, ideal for use as a condiment. “There are no preservatives or other nasties, just pure Australian honey with a chilli kick.”

GM Innovation Fiona Tavian says: “We know Australians are always looking for ways to add excitement to their meals and prioritise natural ingredients. Chilli honey is the perfect way to add a sweet-savoury spicy kick to their foods, with the average household consuming chilli every ten days and one survey suggesting five million adults enjoy hot sauce once a week.

“What a great way to support Aussie beekeepers by tapping into this huge appetite for Chilli products! Our Hot Chilli Honey is a convenient, versatile and mouth-watering addition to the pantry that we think will be a hit with customers young and old, for home cooked and takeaway foods.”

And the demand for chilli is set to grow, with studies suggesting those under 35 and Aussie men are especially partial to a chilli hit, and as many as half a million adults include hot sauces in their diet every day.

“While Capilano has been around for 70 years, we are always looking to innovate and make honey feel new and exciting for cooking and baking. We are sure Australians are going to love our Hot Chilli Honey,” Ms Tavian said.

Capilano’s 340g squeeze pack of Hot Chilli Honey ($7.50) is now available at Woolworths and will be stocked in Coles supermarkets from 2 October. The product is also available online.
