Honey Tender

Background

The Luangwa Community Forests Project (LCFP) and Lower Zambezi REDD+ Project (LZRP) are two of Zambia’s leading forest conservation projects.  The two projects are a partnership with 13 Chiefdoms, and are implemented by DNPW, Forestry Department, and BCP; in Lusaka and Eastern Province.   The combined mission of both projects is to make conservation of wildlife habitat valuable to people.  The project implementation model focuses on livelihood improvements at a household level to reduce local drivers of deforestation. 

As part of our livelihood improvements within the communities that we support, we have made an effort to drive sustainable, Non-Timber Forest Product businesses for our communities to benefit from.  Previously, we have partnered with a company to assist us with running a beekeeping scheme where the company installs hives and provides technical support in the form of “beekeeping mentors” who provide the communities with technical advice when it comes to beekeeping and harvesting.

We have experienced some challenges with poor harvesting and production results over the last two years and would like to look at partnering with a new “Honey Producer” to assist us in driving Honey Production forward. We would need a company to install hives, station mentors at select sites as well as drive production in order for the honey to be brought to market.
