One lazy afternoon on a holiday, Amit discovered to his horror that some people from the very community he was living in had destroyed an enormous bee hive using pest control measures. This incident affected Amit to no end, the sheer lack of awareness and imagined fear had resulted in the destruction of a whole colony of bees. And that was the beginning of a long journey.
Amit took it upon himself to travel the length and breadth of the country to learn techniques to handle bees of varied species and more about the important role these bees played in our eco-system.
This was when Amit realized that his calling in life was conservation of honey bees. He started holding awareness sessions in schools, colleges, corporate and other institutions. He also started providing services for relocation of hives and non-violent harvesting of honey. This was the beginning of Bee Basket.
Along with the conservation of bees, our objective at Bee Basket is to infuse raw honey in its purest form into your daily lifestyle for a healthier living.
Bee Basket’s honey is procured from prime sources, where no unethical, or unnatural practices are deployed. The honey is harvested without destroying the bee hive, enabling bees to use the same hive. The honey is tested for purity and packed hygienically ensuring you have on your table, the best honey money can buy.
