Africa’s Bee Industry is Abuzz with New Opportunities

After resigning from her job to become a beekeeper at her grandfather’s request in 2012, Mmabatho Morudi soon realised that bees are endangered in South Africa and that the country did not produce enough honey. She also noticed that the farmers in her community could use help improving their harvest and that they struggled to market their produce, so she came up with an ingenious idea to tackle these issues simultaneously.  Every product from Morudi’s business is part of an ecosystem that tackles food insecurity, poverty and nutrition, unemployment and environmental issues.
