A sustainable eco-innovation business who advise organisations about ways to maintain sustainability. The honey from their beehives is cold extracted and unpasteurized from areas around Scotland and they also sell other honey products such as honeycomb, propolis and honey beer.
Plan Bee are, essentially, a beehive management service, offering bees as a way for companies to get involved with sustainability, environment and community initiatives. In short, they can help put a few beehives on your roof, and then accompany you on a journey of increased awareness of the value bees offer. With some striking branding and switched-on marketing, coupled with a sincere commitment to its cause, Warren Bader and team have further developed their profile by selling honey, honeygar (a honey based tonic and salad dressing), candles and, following a successful crowdfunder in 2015, beer and mead. All are produced from honey gathered from their partnership hives across the UK. Under the Beehive Brae label, the beers currently include a blonde Honey Beer, a darker Red version, with mead on its way. All their products are available for online order and delivery, or you can buy directly from their base near Motherwell during office hours. Find the beer in the Guildford Arms in Edinburgh or Glasgow pubs Munro's and the Battlefield Rest.
