The Honey Bee

A large quantity of the food that we eat has been provided by bees, either directly or indirectly. The fruit and vegetables that we consume are only able to grow naturally. The bee pollinating the plants from which they grow. The bee’s pollination of plants also offers indirect support to our food chain. They provide the animals we farm with sustenance too. Pollination isn’t the only precious job that bees undertake. Bees also provide us with products such as wax and varieties of honey.

The honey bee provides a precious role in our food production, the bee needs to be protected; sadly, the worldwide honey bee population has been declining due to multiple factors, such as, the usage of pesticides placed on plants, as well as the increase of parasites, disease and the decline of rural habitats, that have left bees with nothing to pollinate. It’s been estimated that around a third of our food production is as a result of natural pollination undertaken by bees.

Without bees, pollination would have to be done manually – this would be an expensive and time-consuming process to undertake. The prices of food (as well as other related costs, such as fuel) would definitely rise, leaving many of us in a difficult position when purchasing what must seem like the most basic of items today.

New Zealand is unlike other countries, it is non-GMO and has strict pesticide regulations. New Zealand is also fortunate enough to have a growing bee population. At The House of Honey our health and well being products have been sourced as a direct result of the hard work of the Manuka Honey bee.

How Does Manuka Honey Benefit Our Well Being?

The versatility of honey sees it used in a wide range of products – from support for soothing cough, as a beauty product to improve the health of our skin and even as sweets to promote healthier eating. In general, the benefits that honey provides can be:
