Bentley flying bees reach sweet new milestone. 

In parallel with the company’s financial successes this year, Bentley’s very own extraordinary ‘Flying Bees’ too have had an exceptionally fruitful season.


The Excellence Centre for Honey Production is just one of many initiatives which have been carried out to improve site sustainability at the factory.

Competitively on par with the productivity levels of their human colleagues, the Bentley flying bees have produced an estimated record 1,000 jars of honey from Bentley’s very own Excellence Centre for Honey Production. 

A colony of 120,000 honey bees have taken up residence back in May 2019, as part of Bentley’s GoToZero sustainable strategy.

Since then, this number has swelled to well over 600,000 across 10 active bee hives.

Interested in a jar? Yes, the honey has been jarred and packaged and will be shared with Bentley employees. However, if one wishes to get their hands on an elegant jar of honey, Bentley is only giving them out as gifts for VIP visitors and guests to the Bentley headquarters in Crewe. Truly a unique gift from the Bentley flying bees!

Other activities Bentley is campaigning for include handmade bird and hedgehog boxes dotted around the campus by Bentley’s employees, and 100 trees that have been planted around the factory grounds.

Who knew an automotive brand can have a cute little ecosystem too?
