Glasgow's Battlefield Rest celebrates it's 100th birthday by installing Plan Bee beehives on the roof of the restaurant

Earlier this week, long standing south-side restaurant, the Battlefield Rest celebrated it's centenary by installing bee hives on the roof, helping to support the crucially declining bee population and provide an in-house supply of honey to be used in the menu.

Marco Giannasi, owner of the Battlefield Rest said, 

 "Our customers expect high quality produce, they want local produce and they want it to be good for the environment. Working with Plan Bee Ltd will allow us to raise the bar in urban sustainability, while also providing an interesting talking point for our many regulars."

Warren Bader, chief executive of Plan Bee, said the beehives would be a "standout feature" for customers to the restaurant.

"They are committed to high-quality local produce, and it doesn't get much more local than right up here on the roof," he added.

Beehive Brae receive massive press coverage as they launch their crowdfunding campaign

The team at Beehive Brae received some much deserved praise from national press last week for their award winning mead and honey beer product

The key message was how the cult television series Game of Thrones has had a massive impact in boosting the sales of mead in the USA and UK as Beehive Brae reported a 42% increase in sales of mead last year.

The Company are using the crowdfunding campaign to help with legal fees and for a winemaking license and if a success the company will be able to create 4 job opportunities within the local community.  Warren Badar, founder of Plan Bee and Beehive Brae said;  

“We operate in a socially responsible way by giving employment where we can – especially in the functions of bottling and labelling - to disadvantaged individuals within our community and we insist on paying our people the living wage, with fixed hours of work."

As of today Beehive Brae have over achieved on their £2500 crowdfunding target.  Check out the campaign vimeo below
