Sweetest ‘Policy’ in Whitehall
The first jars of honey produced from Defra’s beehives have been collected.  Defra’s first yield of 6.5kg have been bottled with the label ‘Whitehall Honey’ – just in time for National Honey Week.  Defra installed beehives on the roof of Defra’s building in Westminster to demonstrate government commitment to improve health & well-being of pollinators.  The government’s National Pollinator Strategy, which was launched last year, aims to raise awareness of what pollinators need to thrive.  As part of the strategy, Defra launched the Bees’ Needs campaign, which consists of 5 simple actions.
