Fourth Line Limited
Producing moveable, durable and productive beehives
Fourthline Limited developed and is scaling a unique designed beehive that is movable, durable and increases farmers productivity per hive, all made from reclaimed wood offcuts, and low cost solar powered bee venom harvesting devices uniquely designed to fit the Miombo forest climate.
The hives and devices are consigned to outgrowers by engaging them to produce honey and bee venom for increased production for export into global markets. Payments to outgrowers are made in cash, supplies or solar products; our system is backed by a block chain based supply chain verification system to prevent fraud, increase transparency, improve producers’ quality and expand economic opportunities for engaged farmers for sustainable honey and bee venom production.
Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI) is providing Fourth Line with technical assistance in the developing of value added products and technological advancements of the project and helps to identify, mobilize and train strategic rural outgrowers through local grassroots. https://www.iowajpec.org/yaliatuiowa
