3Bee is a dynamic, energetic, family-owned company based in Brightwater, Nelson, New Zealand. Four long-time friends – Dorje & Andrea Strang and Tim Madden & Helen Johnston (Founders) – gathered their many and varied experiences and skill-sets to create a business that has quickly grown from beekeeping and honey production for the NZ market to exporting multiple honey product formats around the world.
Honey and bees have been a lifelong passion for the founders of 3Bee. For 30 years, Dorje has kept bees and been fascinated with their habits and ability to make amazing products from the wilds of New Zealand. He spent a year beekeeping in remote parts of Montana, USA, and longed to bring this experience back home to New Zealand.
Since inception, 3Bee has grown to a team of around 42 million enthusiastic bees and nine passionate, hardworking beekeepers and office staff that love what they do and do it very well. 3Bee believes in beehives bursting with health, producing perfect honey and establishing positive long-term relationships with customers, staff and business partners.
