    OUR BEE
    HOTEL

    Here at GLP, we have procured the services of professional beekeepers Cardona & Son to install apiaries across our network of sites in the UK. Their role is to maintain the health and welfare of our bees and manage the production of delicious, local honey. Our first apiary was installed at our Milton Keynes site and is thriving!

    HONEY
    PRODUCTION

    Keeping bees is rewarding in a number of ways, but delicious honey is certainly one of the greatest rewards. We are extremely pleased with how the four colonies on site have grown, and with the huge amount of honey they have produced this year.

    THE IMPORTANCE
    OF BEES

    If bees didn’t exist, humans couldn’t exist either. The honeybee is the most important of them all and it’s vital we protect them. Honeybees populate the world of pollinating insects more than any other bee or insect on Earth, making them the most crucial pollinator of crops across the globe.

    Imagine a world without bees. Many plants rely on the pollination from bees, and simply wouldn’t survive without them. This would impact the diets of all living creatures, including humans.

    LOCATIONS

    The project G-Hive was launched on Magna Park, Milton Keynes, back in January 2018. The bees have been on site at this flagship apiary since December 2018. Since then, we have earmarked further GLP locations with great beekeeping potential.
