On World Bee Day today, let’s “bee” grateful for this humble food-producing animal which has been benefiting humanity, plants and the planet for centuries. By spreading pollen amongst flowers, bees enable many plants, including food crops, to reproduce, making an important contribution to global food supply. They also play a crucial role in protecting vibrant ecosystems.

Tropical forests are among the world’s richest habitats; the streams that flow through them, for example, have five to ten times more fish than waterbodies elsewhere.

Whilst nature fosters diversity, markets in today’s fast-paced world appear to be doing the opposite.
