Karibee is a premium honey brand from Western Australia. Since its inception in 1960 it has operated as a family business, but it is currently in the process of transition to a private company structure. The business operates from a base located on approximately 500acres of virgin Banksia woodland surrounded by the Moore River National Park, 150km north of Perth, in the Central West region of Western Australia. The birth place of the Karibee Honey brand.
Centennial experience of beekeeping has resulted in the high quality of our honey. Marking it as the ultimate natural premium Western Australian honey.
WA’s clean environment has benefited in the quality of Karibee’s honey, the unique native vegetation types has helped in producing of the top quality honey -Jarrah honey.
Researches have been carried out on Jarrah honey has a high antibacterial and antimicrobial activity. Due to its high hydrogen peroxide level, it can inhibit Golden Staph Bacteria. The unique production process has made Karibee one of the leading honey brands in WA.
Dr Peter Detchon, the manager of ANB’s apiary, is also a leader in the WA bee industry; Dr Detchon has shaped the beekeeping industry in Western Australia, laid the foundation for the beekeeping businesses in WA and is the flagship of ANB. Dr Detchon was the doctor that successfully graduated from the University of Western Australia’s Medical school. The first beekeeper to advocate for a full-scale zero pesticide, zero-antibiotic beekeeper in Western Australia after the crisis, and eventually made the government legislate for it; the legislations lasted till today. He was the first biological expert to advocate for scientific beekeeping, to cultivate sterile bee species as his own beekeeping subject. He trained the descendants of ‘hygiene Queen’ to be stronger and produce honey colonies.
These honey colonies are being tested by the most demanding world- class laboratories and the results are close to zero.
Peter was born in England during World War II and was first introduced to beekeeping by his grandfather in 1947 when he was a little boy.
Later, Peter’s strong interest in nature and biology led him to undertake studies at London University and so the beehives were put aside.
During his studies he became interested in medical research and so, after graduating with a degree in Chemistry and Physiology, he started working on the links between aerial pollutants and lung cancer at the Chester Beatty Research Institute in London.
Peter furthered his studies by completing a doctorate in Biochemistry at Sheffield University, but the real attraction at that time was being able to escape the city and spend time in the nearby Peak District National Park.
On returning to Australia, Peter worked as a Research Scientist with the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Organization (CSIRO) in the Division of Horticultural Research. It was there that Peter and Jenny met through their common interest in scientific research.
Peter, however, couldn’t help but apply his scientific and research background to the bees and was soon artificially inseminating queen bees as part of his program to breed disease-resistant “Hygienic” bees. As a result, no chemicals are used in the management of beehives in WA, thus preserving our honey as amongst the cleanest in the world.

ANB produces and supplies varietal honeys under the Karibee Honey brand as well as supplying bulk honey to the packing sector. They also produce bee pollen, sold in bulk and as a retail packaged product along with cut honeycomb for local and export supply.
ANB has a long history of research and development in the area of bee health and resistance to disease.
This strong commitment to bee health led them to produce and export bees and queen bees from their queen rearing programme. As part of this activity, ANB employ instrumental insemination in an in-house breeding programme to select for, and produce hygienic strains of bees with enhanced disease resistance.
ANB recently worked with the Malaysian Government on a trial of Apis mellifera beehives to improve pollination of Oil Palms in Sabah, supplying bees and expert advice.
