Rich in heritage and family history, Beechworth Honey is one of Australia’s best-loved brands.
Beechworth Honey’s heritage includes four generations of beekeeping in northeast Victoria.
Beechworth Honey’s state of the art honey processing plant is located at Corowa in NSW (just over the state border from Beechworth), the hub of a large Australian honey gathering network. This location helps streamline the distribution of the company’s growing product range.
Supported by the family’s 130 years of knowledge of apiculture, Beechworth Honey remains an innovative company committed to the highest standards and to always producing the purest quality, 100% Australian honey.
A trusted part of the Australian
landscape for over 130 years.
Born and bred in Beechworth, Steven and Jodie Goldsworthy purchased their own bees in 1992 and developed the Beechworth Honey label soon after. In 1999 they formed the prestigious and highly awarded company of today.
Beechworth Honey is a valued player in the Australian honey industry. The company is always looking for innovative ways of improving the marketing opportunities for Australian honey, both domestically and internationally.
Beechworth Honey is committed to continuing its lead role in the space of public education and awareness of the complex, cumulative and interrelated threats to honeybees and beekeeping. Of particular concern is the rapid decline in the number of beekeepers in Australia.
There has been a decline of 30% of Australia’s mainstream beekeepers since 2008. This statistic means that 60% of Australia’s honey is produced by 250 beekeepers. Put simply, Australia’s future food security and agricultural prosperity lies in the hands of around 1400 barely viable, ageing beekeepers.
The Beechworth Honey philosophy is for integrity, fairness and sustainability balanced with profitability. Our customers are our most important asset.
We develop mutually rewarding business relationships with the hard working Australian beekeeping families who entrust their product to us. In so doing, the company tries to lead by good example to ensure that business development is not earned through the exploitation of others or of the environment.
We value diversity in people and will always seek to grow and promote the good within the individuals who work for Beechworth Honey, in order to value them appropriately and encourage them to fulfil their potential.
The reality is that there are major threats related to both Australian beekeeping and our agricultural production that relies on honeybees for vital pollination.
Sadly, the significant decline (30% since 2008) of Australia’s mainstream beekeepers reminds us of how important the critical need for improved Government policy and increased honeybee research is. We want to help ensure the sustainability of Australia’s future food security and pollination dependent industries that include sourcing honey and pollinated food products.
As honey specialists, we believe that by raising these social and environmental issues, we can also promote the superior qualities of 100% Australian honey around the country and around the world.
It’s simple. We provide 100% Australian honey products and 100% Australian-grown produce and supplies that exceed expectations. To do that we follow our time-honoured values.
We’re Australia’s most passionate advocate for the communication of the important role honeybees play to food production via their pollination.
We’re Australian honey specialists because of our heritage, family history and love of the Australian honey industry.
We believe the continuation of our businesses and our industry is dependent on profit balanced with sustainability.
