Mary Canning, founder of the "human rights" inspired company, Follow the Honey, saw a critical need for providing a commercially sustainable outlet for marginalized beekeepers in poor countries, a pursuit that encourages land conservation, best beekeeping practices, and eco-tourism in places where farming tobacco and maize, or mining, are often the only alternatives. With a popular brick n’ mortar store in Harvard Square - awarded Best Green Business by Scout Magazine 2016 & 2017- Mary’s staff daily see proof that the empowerment story of honey terroir to help alleviate poverty, incentives consumers to pay a premium price that can support higher commercial payments to farmers providing healthy forage to bees. Follow The Honey has exotic supply chain partnerships in various stages of development from the ‘miombo’ woodland habitats & medicinal stingless bees of Tanzania to the rhododendron forests of the High Hims - which inspired Tolkien - to the southern Florida bayous of the Everglades redolent with Orange Blossom. Their mantra is, ‘Taste the world. Like the bees, together we rise.’
