(Capital Press) A new agreement between the California Almond Board and the Pollinator Partnership aims to improve habitat for bees by increasing the number of farmers taking steps to protect pollinators, and to recognize producers for best practices.
(Xerces Society) The Bee Better certification identifies farms and food ingredients that meet a rigorous standard for bee protection. Häagen-Dazs worked with their largest almond supplier in California to plant over six miles of flowering native shrub hedgerows, and to plant wildflowers as part of their certification process.
(Xerces Society) Bee Better Certified has grown significantly since its launch during Pollinator Week 2017, having certified nine farms. This summer the program has reached yet another milestone: the first product licensed to display the Bee Better Certified seal is now arriving in stores.
