Native Irish Honey Bee Society – Apis mellifera mellifera

Native Irish Honey Bee Society
Apis mellifera mellifera


Honey Label

In highlighting our own indigenous Irish Honey Bee (Apis mellifera mellifera), the Native Irish Honey Bee Society, have launched a product label. For NIHBS members selling honey from native Irish honey bees, we encourage you to affix a “Produced by Native Irish Honey Bees” label, which identifies your product as being from Ireland and from our special bees. It’s been shown that beekeepers increase sales and can charge a premium in comparison to honeys without our labels. You can purchase rolls of 100, 500, 1000 or 5000, depending on your harvest and sales potential.  The label is aimed at creating, consumer interest, awareness and support in protecting of our unique biodiversity. This is only available to members of the Society and in agreement with certain terms and conditions.

2. My bees to the best of my knowledge are native Irish honeybees (Apis Mellifera Mellifera).
3. The Label shall only be used on products produced by Native Irish Honey Bees (Apis Mellifera Mellifera).
4. The labels cannot be resold or transferred to any third party.
5. I support the Aims and Objectives of NIHBS.
6. The NIHBS reserves the right to withdraw the label at any time. A refund will be given for unused labels.
