Emebet Commercial Beekeeping for Environment PLC

Emebet Commercial Beekeeping for Environment PLC (ECBE) is based in Ethiopia’s southwestern Afromontane Region in the Majang Zone, which is a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve of Gambela Region hosting natural and native ecosystems, home to a number of indigenous highland trees and flora, particularly conducive for bees and for honey production. ECBE specifically works with Majang honey collectors who live in the buffer zones and edges of these forests. The demand for natural products and the expansion of commercial farm investments are eroding these natural forests seriously impacting the livelihoods of Majang people. Together with the Majang community, ECBE aims to support the preservation of the biodiversity of bees and their ecosystems.
