World Honey Bee Day (formerly known as World Honey Bee Awareness Day) is an awareness day started by beekeepers in the United States to build community awareness of the bee industry, through education and promotion. This day has been started to save bees & for the betterment of Beekeepers. Apis India Ltd. encourage and working continuously towards the development of beekeeping industry & associated beekeepers.
Event was initiated by a small group of beekeepers who filed for official declaration and obtained a formal proclamation by the USDA honoring honey bees and beekeeping. In 2010, a non-profit, Pennsylvania Apiculture Inc. was organized to better facilitate and promote the observance. The original date of observation was August 22, 2009 (the fourth Saturday of August), but has settled permanently on the third Saturday of August.
Let’s celebrate this day and join hands for the betterment of Beekeepers, Beekeeping Industry & Honey Bees.
Honey is the only insect-created food with therapeutic medicinal, nutritional & cosmetic value. #SaveTheBees
