Beekeepers play an important key role in the fight to end the cycle of bee devastation. However, American apiaries are faced with multifaceted challenges.
To list a few:
- Colony Collapse Disorder
- Lack of lucrative avenues to sell honey
- Difficult to compete with cheap imports monopolizing the food industry
To address these problems, we have created a fair-trade online platform Domestic Beekeepers’ Marketplace (DBM) where beekeepers can sell their products directly to consumers bypassing the middleman. Consumers can easily find LOCAL honey by their state or county. DBM will provide a wholesale auction geared towards food producers and packers.
We plan to help increase the demand for American produced honey and diminish the dependency on imports, connect apiaries with consumers and continue to support sustainable farming.
To reach our target market and gain the significant ground, both conventional and digital marketing strategies will be adopted to create a positively strong awareness about DBM.
Domestic Beekeepers’ Marketplace is a network of like-minded apiaries that offer their honey online to a wider customer base. We support existing beekeepers via fair-trade marketplace and invite new apiaries to start up.
Now accepting beekeepers nationwide.
The online platform domesticbeekeepers.com will be launched Summer 2019.
