Nature's Nectar Limited
A sustainable and impactful honey company
Nature’s Nectar transitions local beekeepers from traditional bark hives to more sustainable beehives. Traditional bark beehives kill one nectar producing tree for every hive made, last only 2-5 years and are dangerous to harvest from. Nature's Nectar is one of two actors in Zambia that distributes and sells longer lasting beehives made of local and sustainable pine.
The hives save local forests, create a safer beekeeping experience as well as a larger harvest. The honey produced is purchased, processed and sold by the company to buyers abroad.
Trident Foundation, focused on park management and programmes, determines beehive locations and beneficiaries, and guides the Nature's Nectar team.
Local honey company Ubuchi provides the enterprise with a processing facility, thus expanding its processing capabilities and feeds in their honey stock so the organisations together can meet client orders.
