Home Sweet Home competition

19 May 2022

Raising awareness of the importance of bees.

To celebrate World Bee Day on Friday 20 May, AHBIC is launching a month-long social media campaign – Home Sweet Home – to raise awareness of the importance of this $14.2 billion honey bee pollination industry and the contribution it makes to health, food security, the economy and community prosperity.

The campaign aims to raise awareness of the invaluable role bees play in producing nutritious food, celebrate the diversity and quality of honey produced locally, highlight the importance of buying 100 per cent Australian honey and share interesting bee and beekeeping facts with consumers.

In partnership with enthusiastic honey producers from across the country, one lucky Instagram follower also has the chance to win 40 different jars of 100 per cent Australian honey!

Learn more about the nation’s important honey bee industry through the Home Sweet Home campaign by following AHBIC on social media.
