Partnership with Bee Downtown
There's new buzz at the bakery! We partnered with Bee Downtown to support sustainable urban agriculture and cultivate an appreciation for the importance of pollinators at our bakery in St. Petersburg, FL. Together, we are protecting bees, building habitat, and strengthening our workplace and local community.
Did you know that of the 100 crop species that provide 90% of the world’s food supply, bees pollinate 71 of them? Pollenity estimates that in the U.S. alone, bees pollinate $16 billion worth of crops, so it’s safe to say that without the bees, the human race would quickly go hungry.
Through our partnership, Lantmännen Unibake USA is able to support the ecosystem, provide employee engagement, and strengthen our community, all while helping beautify the city of St. Petersburg, FL. Bee Downtown installed three hand-painted and company branded hives on-site at our bakery to extend our sustainable initiatives to educate employees and the community on the environmental and economic impact of pollinators. Now, we have the ability to create unique experiences that allow employees and the community to learn and engage with bees, agriculture, each other and their workplace.
