Honeydrop BeveragesHoneydrop Beverages, the leading producer of natural teas and juices made with a tablespoon of honey, is proud to officially announce their “Buy a Bottle – Save a Bee” campaign at Natural Products Expo East 2011. This initiative, established to help fight Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD), an epidemic threatening the global bee population, is at the heart of the brand, with Honeydrop donating a percentage of profits from each bottle sold to carefully selected local beekeepers across the U.S.

Since 2006, the honeybee population has been diminishing at an alarming rate, with nearly 30% of honeybees lost each year to a spectrum of causes, widely known as CCD. Honeybees not only produce Honeydrop’s key ingredient, but also pollinate 1/3 of all the produce we consume, including 90% of apples and oranges and 100% of almonds grown in the U.S., making them an essential member of our agricultural community.

“Being a part of the solution to CCD is an important part of our mission,” says Honeydrop CEO and Founder, David Luks. “Without honeybees, not only is there no honey, but also no almonds, no melons, no tomatoes, no sweet potatoes…they truly are an integral part of our food chain.”

Through “Buy a Bottle – Save a Bee,” Honeydrop will help save the threatened bee population, as a percentage of profits from every bottle sold will be donated to the brand’s community beekeeper partners, helping them to build and maintain new beehives. Each new beehive increases the bee population by 40,000-60,000 bees, actively combating Colony Collapse Disorder.

Having received BevNET’s “Best in Show” award after their launch at Expo East in 2008, Honeydrop is thrilled to be back at the Baltimore Convention Center for this year’s show to announce this important campaign. In addition to the launch of their “Buy a Bottle – Save a Bee,” Honeydrop will also showcase their line of fresh brewed teas and all natural juices, including their recently launched Green Tea, Lemon Tea, and Lemon Ginger Tea flavors. Honeydrop will be exhibiting from September 22-24 at booth #458 at the Expo East show.

Each 14 oz. glass bottle of Honeydrop contains one tablespoon of pure wildflower honey, domestically sourced from regional beekeepers across the U.S. Honeydrop is available at leading natural and gourmet grocers nationwide, including Whole Foods, Nugget Markets, Dean & DeLuca and other fine stores for an MSRP of $1.99.
