African Bronze Honey earns Ottawa residents UN award nomination
Paul Whitney and Liz Connell found way to turn killer bees into honey
An Ottawa company has been nominated for a United Nations sustainability award after turning killer African bees into a killer of a product called African Bronze Honey.
Two Ottawa residents, Paul Whitney and Liz Connell, help residents of Zambia harvest honeycombs from remote forests and turn them into honey.
The former residents of Zimbabwe say the business is unique because it allows the locals to make money off killer bees that live naturally around their villages.
That makes the idea sustainable, which is why the UN has recognized the business.
