Protect the bees

For every sale of Grandma's Honey Drops, 5% of profits are donated to Bee City.

Grandma’s is proud to have partnered with Bee City Canada, a non-profit organization committed to inspiring and engaging communities across Canada to take action to protect pollinators. The movement is growing and everyone can participate!

Globally over the last 15 years we have been losing anywhere from 30% to 90% of honey bee colonies due to Colony Collapse Disorder, term used to identify over 10 different reasons for mysterious honey bee die offs.

Pollinators (mostly insects) are essential to fertilize most plants. How? By harvesting and transporting pollen to plants. As such, pollinators are essential for providing the food that grows in our field and ends on our tables. They are also crucial in preserving the biodiversity of our habitats.

However, the modern use of pesticides and the lack of indigenous plant species and biodiversity have slowly but surely caused an important global declined in pollinator populations.

In order to prevent the total extinction of pollinators, we have decided to partner with different organisms and raise awareness.

Hungry bugs visit plants because they provide them with an important resource: nectar. This sweet sugary liquid is produced in flowers and provides their insect visitors with the energy they need to survive. When an insect lands on a flower to feed, it rubs up against the flower’s pollen grains, which stick to its body as it travels from flower to flower. The transfer of pollen from one flower to another is called pollination, and it is from this process that seeds are produced so future plant generations can continue to grow.

Bee Involved

At Grandma’s, not only did we want to make candies that would be good for you, we also wanted to do good! Bettering ourselves and the world we live in is one of our founding values. We have decided to help save the bees and all pollinators because without them, we can say goodbye to most food items we find on our market stalls: apples, cucumbers, peaches, almond, and so on.
