The purveyors of fine, natural honey, The London Honey Co., were the first to start with the urban beekeeping trend.
It was almost unheard of at the time, but in 1999 Steven Benbow founded The London Honey Co. with a clear goal in mind: “for pure, natural food to be brought back into the heart of the city, and for food to come straight from where it is made without interference.” The idea of letting a quality ingredient speak for itself was key and so, the company was born.
Quickly after their launch, they were invited to visit some incredible, iconic rooftops like Fortnum and Mason, and the Tate art galleries. Fast forward 20 years from when The London Honey Co. was founded and their honeycomb is now a regular feature on plates by chefs like Angela Hartnett, Marcus Waring and Skye Gyngell. When Steven created The London Honey Co. he was missing his rural Shropshire roots, and was eager to bring a bit of the countryside into his life.
Inspired on a daily basis by the beauty, purity and craftsmanship of the bees and their honey, the company is still sticking true to their roots.
