As a company with ethics as it's foundation, we are constantly working towards a more sustainable and non intrusive way of harvesting wild honey. As a first step in this direction, we are now procuring from WWF (The World Wild Life Fund) which has trained tribal honey hunters to harvest the Honey in a very ethical and non intrusive way.
Here are a few pictures on how the honey harvesting and extraction is done by these tribal honey hunters.
The tribal honey hunters are given protective clothing to help them extract the honey without getting stung by the bees.
The harvester is trained to cut out only the part of the hive which contains the honey and to leave the rest of the hive intact.
The Bees are quick to rebuild the hive which helps sustain the bee population in the wild.
The extraction is done in the most hygienic way to ensure our customers get the best quality raw honey.
We are also working on making our packaging environmentally friendly by reducing our use of plastic to the bare minimum. We will soon be also launching a plan to recycle the glass jars.
Thanks to your constant support, we are continuously exploring ways to be a more sustainable and environmentally friendly organization.
Here's a video on how the honey collection takes place in the forests of central India. Honey and Spice works with the World wildlife fund (WWF) and tribal honey hunters in Chattisgarh to bring you this rare, medicinal and exotic honey right from the jungles.
