Bee Sweet and #doDifferent

Honey has long been the preferred choice for those looking for a healthier delivery of sweetness. Wonderful on toast, brilliant on pancakes and delightful in tea, honey has also long been touted for its various health benefits.

Honey is a good source of antioxidants, which help to protect the body against cell damage and the development of chronic diseases. It also has antibacterial and antifungal properties which make it a good treatment for both external and internal ailments. Burns, cuts, and sore throats can all be soothed with this miracle liquid.

Not only is the product good for us, but the producers – bees – are critical to our survival. The pollination work done by bees is essential for maintaining crops and ensuring food security. Some projections suggest that without bees, humans would perish within 4 years! However, bee populations worldwide have been on the decline and rebuilding these populations is now imperative.

One company is pairing the importance of restoring bee populations, and the benefits of quality honey, with another imperative in South Africa – creating employment.

Bee Loved is a South African honey company supplying local, organic, and unprocessed honey (preserving all its health benefits). Their mission is to rebuild honeybee populations by building one million beehives across Africa by 2025. Their purpose is to #doDifferent in this pursuit. 

Bee Loved identifies passionate people in underprivileged rural communities and partners with them to set up productive beehives. Partners are supplied with the beehives and training required to become professional beekeepers, and linked with farms in need of pollination services, creating sustainable employment. The prospect of one million hives leads to significant job creation and a massive impact in creating opportunity and alleviating poverty.

So, when you are looking for something sweet, why not choose some nourishing organic honey produced in South Africa and make an impact on the lives of those who produce it.
