Beemaid Research Grants

The beekeeping and honey industry continually evolves and Bee Maid Honey understands the challenges and the importance of supporting bee research related projects. The Chair and Board of Directors of Bee Maid Honey are pleased to announce the continuation of apicultural research funding for 2012.

The Bee Maid apicultural research support program was created to promote and support bee and honey related research initiatives. Throughout the program’s existence, funding has been provided to a variety of projects such as controlling varroa mites, effective management of parasites, and the effect of miticide on honeybee memory.

Bee Maid will consider project proposals in any area of apiculture or pollination research. Preference will be given to the area of honey and the production of pure quality honey in the Canadian beekeeping industry.

Project proposals should be submitted to Bee Maid Honey by May 31, 2012. Projects are expected to be completed within one year of funding, although renewal applications will be considered.

Bee Maid Honey Limited is the marketing arm of the Alberta Honey Producers Cooperative Limited and the Manitoba Cooperative Honey Producers Limited. Honey produced by beekeepers in western Canada is processed and packaged at Bee Maid’s Winnipeg, MB and Spruce Grove, AB plants.

Bee Maid Honey is proudly owned by Canadian Beekeepers.
