Sustainability Is Our Business
Sustainability isn’t something we talk about so we can make some additional business… it IS our business. That’s why we are a B Corp.
B Corps are businesses that pass a rigorous process of evaluation of your entire company. It reviews how you do business and it ranks your performance. We were named Best For The World Changemakers three years in a row. We didn’t earn that without being sustainable at every opportunity.
In addition to being a proud certified B Corp:
✔️ We are Certified Organic by Eco Cert
✔️ We are a Member of the Fair Trade Federation
✔️ We are a Canadian Food Agency Registered Honey Processing Facility
✔️ We are becoming plastic neutral
It’s more important than ever to care about sustainability and honey
It is our vision to create a global supply chain for the healthiest honey on the planet. We believe in food that:
✔️ Restores the planet instead of damaging it
✔️ Enhances healthy bee populations and wilderness areas
✔️ Creates sustainable jobs for marginalized remote communities
✔️ Protects forests from deforestation
Food production is not sustainable if the production methods cause damage. And most agricultural practices cause damage. In reality, many agricultural practices today are the root cause of the collapse of bee populations due to the use of neonics. Neonicitinoids are the most pervasive insecticides in agriculture today. They are killing our bees. At best, they weaken the bees so greatly that the hive is unable to defend itself from pests. It is believed that the bees are actually attracted to the pesticide (potentially the nicotine) and the levels are high enough to destroy the homing instincts of the bees. They go out to gather nectar and the neonics disorient them enough that they can no longer find their way back to the hive.
Bees are so important to our planet. They pollinate our fruit, vegetables, plants and trees. That's why we make honey that comes from healthy bees that are never exposed to insecticides. It's a way to improve plants, trees, wild animal populations, protect water resources, help combat climate change, and create sustainable incomes…while giving our customers a healthier alternative at an affordable price.
