Fairtrade and Organic Zambian forest honey.
Gathered from wild bees deep in the remote miombo forests of NW Zambia, where beekeepers hang their hives high in the trees out of reach of honey badgers and army ants. Wild swarms occupy the hives and start filling them with honeycomb. After a few years the beekeepers return, climb the trees and crop the honey, leaving some for the bees.
Honey exports have revitalised the economy of the forest villages. More people join each year, confident that they can raise their families on this Fair Trade income.
