Congratulations to Bee Good
Coller IP’s client, Bee Good, has won ‘highly commended’ in the ‘Championing British’ category at the Waitrose Way Awards 2015! The purpose of the Waitrose Way Awards is to recognise outstanding efforts and achievements from Waitrose’s entire supplier base, in supporting the retailer in delivering their ethical and sustainability objectives.
Simon Cavill, Beekeeper & Co-founder said: “We’re immensely proud of our Bee Good skincare products, but what we especially love about this award is that it recognises how we do business. It acknowledges our philosophy which is at the heart of Bee Good and which makes us, us! Waitrose understands that we are all dependant on bees and other pollinators for the country’s food security and it’s great to be recognised for the way that we care for our bee-autiful British bees as well as for our support of bee farmer apprentices across the UK. The ‘Championing British’ category demonstrates exceptional efforts in support and encouragement for sustainable British Agriculture and shows an increase in the sourcing of British raw materials.”
Hear from Simon here:
Just some of Bee Good’s initiatives include:
- Supporting British bee farmers Bee Good exclusively and directly sources all of its bee ingredients from independent British bee farmers and is proud to be the only British premium skincare brand to do so.
- Sponsoring Britain’s future bee farmers This year Bee Good started the ongoing sponsorship of a young bee farmer apprentice within the Offshoots Permaculture Project in Burnley, Lancs. Bee Good plans to grow its sponsorship in this area as the brand grows.
- Bee Good and Make a Meadow! Bee Good helps to protect our precious bees by distributing thousands of bee-friendly wildflower seeds (via every online order), bringing more bees to Britain’s gardens, allotments, and window boxes. Bee Good’s ambition is to engage communities across Britain to help replace declining areas of wildflower meadows, providing much needed forage for our bees.
