About your host, Sam
As one of the founders of the London Bee Company, I am passionate about bees and all the amazing things they do and produce. As a result, a lot of my time, work and energy is devoted to the welfare of our bees  In 2017 we won a 3* Great Taste Award. I also work with over 300 beekeepers in East Africa (Kenya, South Sudan, Congo, Uganda, Tanzania) helping them develop their beekeeping income through value added product and market access as well as providing training on low cost beeswax production.
