The beekeeping industry is leading the way to showcase exciting career opportunities and the benefits of beekeeping to our community and the food supply chain. Over the last few years the beekeeping industry in partnership with the NSW Agrifood ITAB and supported by NSW Department of Education have hosted showcase days in many parts of regional NSW. These have included Grafton, Alstonville on the North Coast of NSW, Orange/Vittoria in the Central West of NSW and Narranderra in the Riverina of NSW.

These showcase day promotions seem even more important especially in the wake of Woolworths current media campaign to show consumers the importance of beekeeping in pollinating food.

Currently 65% of the food we consume in Australia are pollinated by bees. Much of the food that are consumed by animals in the food chain are also pollinated by bees.

Mr Bruce White (OAM) one of Australia’s leading beekeepers says “it is now more important than ever that young people understand the importance of beekeeping and the myriad of career opportunities available”. For more information including a careers/job guide for the industry please email
