Bee Lovely

 

The humble bee is under threat and needs our help.

Bees are vanishing from around the world. In Britain they're disappearing faster than in the rest of Europe.

Deadly neonics, 7,000 times more deadly than banned DDT, are at the heart of the problem.

Together we can help save the bees.

Organic Honey

The moisturising organic honey in our new Bee Lovely range is a blend of two honeys so pure, they're good enough to eat.
Fine, creamy honey from Nicaragua, where the bees gather nectar from tropical flowers, is blended with delicately flavoured honey from south eastern Mexico.
Both come from cooperatives that guarantee a fair price and sustainable market for the small-scale farmers, and access to their incredible pure organic honey for us.
And don't worry about the bees, the honey is sustainably-sourced, with the beekeepers leaving enough honey to feed the bees through the lean winter months.
