No bees, no us, right? Although Einstein was probably talking more about the human race, plants and animals, the same can be said of Petworth-based deli The Hungry Guest.
The UK’s Deli of the Year are doing their best to support the bees by signing up to stock Origin Honey’s premium Infusions range of honeys as well as the brand’s sister label, Beehive Brae honey beer.
Both are produced by Plan Bee Ltd, which produce award-winning honey, mead and beer and, with more than 200 beehives up and down the country, they’re doing their best to protect and preserve the dwindling honeybee population.
Having returning more than 10 million bees back to the natural environment, their honey is surely one of the most environmentally-friendly products around.
“Our honey has the highest of sustainability credentials, and our beer, as the label proudly quotes, was ‘established for the betterment of bees’,” says Plan Bee CEO and founder, Warren Bader.
“In choosing these products, consumers are showing their support for dwindling honeybee numbers, and showing a greater desire to buy ethically, supporting the environment and championing sustainability.”
