We founded The Scottish Bee Company back in 2017 after long discussions about what we could do to help the environment. We always wanted to run a business that was socially and environmentally responsible and the more we read about the decline in bee numbers, the more we felt we needed to do something.
We started off by giving bees to bee farmers across Scotland in order to help them as there was no funding available to bee farmers. We increased bee numbers by 23 million but quickly learned that there many more types of pollinators that needed our help. This led us to starting our sister charity, Repollinate.org.uk. 10p from every unit sold goes to this charity that aims to increase pollination through education programmes and wildflower projects.
Since then we have achieved multiple awards for our honey, have gained the first ever BSI Kitemark for food provenance and are working hard to tackle the problem of honey fraud around the world. We will always be a business with the environment and people in mind.
We pay a living wage and have flexible working hours. We only use recycled or recyclable packaging. We source ethical honey, bees wax and scents and we always strive to learn more and be our best in all of these areas.
