Board Member for Manufacturing
We installed our first Bentley bee-hives earlier this year as a way to use our expansive site in Crewe to contribute to local biodiversity. Our beekeepers have seen the bees bringing in a wide range of pollens from the wild flowers we’ve planted on our site and the local countryside. This is a great sign that the location is working well and has helped make the first harvest so productive.
“Our Bentley bees are part of a wider programme we’re developing to ensure that our site and business operations reflect our ambitions to become the most sustainable luxury automotive manufacturer – and we’ve had great colleague engagement with the initiative.
“We’re delighted that the initial stage of this project has been a success and we’re looking at installing more hives and increasing the amount of Bentley honey we can produce next year. We know that every little step helps to support local biodiversity and we have plenty more ideas in the pipeline to make sure we’re playing our part.
Yeo Valley Organic
We know how important pollinators are for farmers. We love our bees so much that we want to share the love, so we’ve decided to partner up with Buckley’s Bees to build and manage 10 new beehives and colonies across a number of British organic dairy farms.
“Buckley’s Bees Beekeepers are registered BBKA members and share our passion for all things bee! Over the next two years we hope to provide homes for hundreds of thousands of new British honey bees.
