Bee Natural Uganda Ltd started business in April 2008 after a investment management buy out of the previous company Bee Natural Products Ltd..  Our main area of operation is the West Nile region which includes the districts of Arua, Nebbi, Yumbe, Moyo, Koboko and Adjumani.   The  Ediofe Mission Centre in Arua is the location of our modern processing plant.   Our control of quality is achieved by working closely with the registered 1,200 beekeepers who are clustered  into groups of 15.  In collaboration with these groups we have developed a queen breeding and colony multiplication yard which not only maintains but increases the bee colonies for our beekeepers.

CRS work:

Our factory employees are mainly women (70%) who come from a low educational background. The employment opportunities we offer have significantly improved the quality of their lives and those of their families.  To encourage a collective community enterprise the beekeeper groups are of mixed gender and provide realisable prospects for a sustainable income stream for the rural poor. We continuously carry out training for the beekeepers  and introduce them to modern hives and  improved harvesting techniques which not only improve quality but also increase yeilds and as a result their income. We also introduce them to subsidised financing to grow their business.
