      Established commercial producers play an important role in setting up primary production zones bringing available infrastructure, existing skills and knowledge transfer to empower emerging and small scale producers in the area.

Heuningpot

Heuningpot Beekeeping Co-operative

The small, rural town of Deben, in the Northern Cape, is where the Heuningpot Beekeeping Cooperative came into being. OrganiMark partnered with the National Development Agency and Anglo American - Kumba Iron Ore to equip twelve diligent individuals from the impoverished Dibeng community with the necessary skills to produce raw organic honey.

In this relatively desolate part of the Kalahari, the twelve people selected were given a year's training by Agri Seta and Skills for Africa. They each received a Certificate in Animal Production on completion, allowing them to become self-employed beekeepers with the prospect of earning a monthly income to support their families. The initiative has not only given these Deben residents valuable skills and a greater sense of purpose, it has also encouraged them to strive for greater independence as business owners. Heuningpot is now recognised as a full member of the South African Bee Industry Organisation, which adds to the sense of pride that these beekeepers have in their sweet, wholesome honey.

Many employment initiatives, unlike Heuningpot, do not see workers benefit fully from their skilled labour. This is where OrganiMark has undertaken to ensure economic responsibility in the form of ethical supply chains between farmers and retailers. Heuningpot honey is sold in stores that subscribe to fair trade principles, which means that the Deben beekeepers are in fact getting the premium that consumers pay for Heuningpot honey. For people who buy this product, they are asured that their purchase is supporting the Heuningpot beekeepers to elevate their families above the poverty line and, furthermore, is helping them grow into sustainable business owners.

The organic status of Heuningpot honey means that it adheres to a production system that sustains the health of local soils, ecosystems and people. The bees that make this honey collect nectar from indigenous plants and their harvest area is free of agricultural and chemical contaminants. It's not uncommon to find many brands making these claims without providing a way for consumers to verify their quality declarations. The labelling on Heuningpot honey showcases various marks of certification by third party organisations, including Organimark, who has taken this one step further by allowing purchasers to go online and trace the product bought in store back to the circumstances under which it was made.
