Template:Infobox Company

Honningcentralen is a Norwegian processor and distributor of honey with two processing plants, at Kløfta and Grimstad. It is organised as an agricultural cooperative with 1,650 members. In addition to Norweigan honey, it also imports Croatian and Argentinian honey.


The cooperative was founded on November 28, 1927 and until World War II there was not a good market for retailing honey. After the war sugar was rationed and honey became an important substitute. The most important aspect was to cover medical needs, and hospitals, orphanages and pharmacies were prioritised. The rest was distributed out between the wholesalers. The rationing was removed in 1952. The plant in Grimstad opened in the 1970s and in 2005 the central moved from Oslo to Kløfta.[1]
