Honey-Bees are a sign of how healthy we are, how healthy our environment is, and how healthy our economy might be as a result. We work hard to support these essential and impressive pollinators who are vital to our personal well-being, and carry a huge amount of responsibility on their tiny shoulders.
It is part of the ‘About the Bees’ mission to help you understand the role flower pollination has to play in delivering a healthy and balanced diet as well as sustaining our environment.
Some staggering and impressive honey-bee statistics reveal that:
approximately 80% of flowering plants on the planet are reliant upon pollination
a honey- bee can pollinate approximately 250 million flowers per day
the FREE service they offer provides almost £700 million of UK crops every year
Did you know that the endangered honey-bee is the most efficient pollinator of all?
We appreciate that a healthy lifestyle is very much ‘About the Bees’
