Through its beelove line of Certified Naturally Grown honey and other products, Sweet Beginnings empowers individuals with a history of criminal convictions and other barriers to employment. While gaining valuable job skills associated with the production and sale of honey and honey-infused products, these individuals are set up to secure long-term employment and achieve economic advancement. The company has already made a measurable difference in hundreds of lives.

Packed with Purpose offers your choice of light, subtly flavored honey from Sweet Beginnings’ five natural urban apiaries, whose bees forage on prairie flowers along local boulevard parks, in community gardens, and other nectar sources, all while helping those with barriers to employment find a path toward self-sufficiency.
