I started BEES of BRITAIN in 2018 when I was a17 year old student, as an A level college project.
Now, in 2021, I am at University, and my family look after the day to day running of BEES of BRITAIN.
I know that,in the middle of the Coronavirus pandemic and the world looking for solutions,
our small effort at helping to look after bees and pollinators is more important than ever.
This is why I created BEES of BRITAIN, to help bees and other pollinators.

We only use natural ingredients of the highest quality.
I was born in Hampshire and have lived here all my life. Living in the countryside has meant that I grew up playing in big fields, climbing trees and exploring everything around me. This started my interest in the environment. At the age of 13, I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to collect and jar honey at my school. This was my first experience with honey production. Soon after I joined a club in which we would make beeswax products, where I learned to create cosmetics using bee produce.
BEES of BRITAIN began with extensive research into the issues that bees face and the problems with industrial scale honey and beeswax production. It became clear that I could make a real change within my local (and hopefully global) area.
BEES of BRITAIN is a Social Enterprise, our mission is to inform people about the decline of bees, how important they are to planet earth and highlight and support the possible solutions.
BEES of BRITAIN buys honey from ethical, local artisan beekeepers based in Hampshire. We use vegetable and flower oils that bees love. This encourages the planting of bee-friendly cultivars.
We don't use toxic chemicals or ingredients. We keep our packaging to a minimum, we do not use boxes or leaflets. We only use high percentage post-consumer, fully reclaimable and reprocessable Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) bottles, jars and labels with a low carbon footprint. We only use other sustainable materials for our packaging: Aluminium and glass. Any outer packaging we use is required for shipping and is made of Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE) that is fully reclaimable and reprocessable as well.
