Did you know that only 7% of the honey sold in the UK is from British bees?
Nearly all the honey we buy is from abroad, with a staggering 40% from China. The majority of honey in our shops is filled with a blend of different imported honeys designed to keep the flavour constant from jar to jar. It’s a bland honey and hides all that’s amazing about it. Hive & Keeper is on a mission to change this.
The number of bee hives in the UK is down 18% from 2014 to 2016, and we're predicted to loose 6,000 beekeepers between 2017-19.
Hive & Keeper are supporting numerous British beekeepers by:
Selling their unique honeys that are specific to a single apiary and harvest; be it from bees kept in gardens, allotments, woodlands or farms.
championing the real (and varied) taste, colours and textures of British honey when it’s taken straight from the hive, it's time to appreciate our own home-grown honeys and the bees and beekeepers behind them.
Hive & Keeper brings you British honeys straight from the hive, full of health benefits and natural flavours that reflect their provenance and the bees that made them.
