G-Bee & 80,000 Bees
We adopted G-Bee to symbolise our company values of Industry, Community and Environmental Responsibility.
We are the proud parents of 80,000 honey bees who live near our HQ in sunny Essex and our industrious little kids produce our very own G-Bee honey. Our bees are looked after by our very own GB Beekeepers who work tirelessly to process our lovely honey – find out more here. If you would like to try our lovely honey (stock dependent) or just find out more about our bees then we’d love to hear from you.
BEES ARE UNDER THREAT
In the past few years honey bees have experienced substantial declines. There were 27 species of bees in Britain and sadly 3 are now extinct with many others under threat. The British bee population has declined at an alarming rate over the last few years – by a third since 2007
Healthy bee populations are important to human health and well-being which is why it’s so important we all do our bit to help. Colony collapse is economically significant because many agricultural crops are pollinated by bees.
