“Their passion for bees and the environment enables them to enthuse and educate those that they encounter, creating ecoambassadors”

The Bee Centre, members of East Lancashire Chamber of Commerce and Industry, is a unique self-funded business, founded through a passion for bees and the environment.

Their mission is to demonstrate that sustainability businesses can be economically viable and need not rely on external funding. They believe that the environment is not a charity, and they are passionate in delivering a genuinely sustainable business model.

Sustainability is at the heart of this business. They breed locally adapted, native honeybees, which makes them unusual, even in the beekeeping world. This is because their bees are better suited to the local climate and seasonality than the imported honey bee breeds, which comprise the majority of stocks in the UK. Whilst their headline act’ is their honeybees, they are really a biodiversity organisation, actively working to support all 273 species of bee in the UK.

In doing so, they enhance biodiversity and habitats to maintain healthy and robust ecosystems. This, in turn, supports the function of diverse natural cycles, including those involved in controlling atmospheric carbon.

Established by recognised sustainability professionals, they operate a ‘SmallFootprint – Big Impact’ ethos. They minimise their negative sustainability impacts whilst maximising the positive value they deliver, by inspiring others to act in support of the environment.
