The Scottish Bee Company was founded by Iain and Suzie Millar in 2017. They felt strongly about the UK’s declining bee population and decided to do something to help. Their passion and determination prompted them to adopt some bees, hire a team of expert bee farmers and brought them together in the heather covered hills of Scotland to produce uniquely flavorful honeys that evoke a sense of Scotland’s unspoiled wilderness.
Today, The Scottish Bee Company have over 500 hives equating to around 25 million bees at the height of summer! Suzie and Iain also started a sister charity - www.repollinate.org.uk that aims to protect all types of pollinators through wildflowers spaces and education programmes. 10p from every jar of honey purchased is donated to Repollinate.
The Scottish Bee Company utilise the best hives for the welfare of all their bees. Their hives are specially designed to nurture the bee population and specifically for keeping them safe during the cold Scottish winter months.
