FROM HIVE TO HOME
Natural, Sustainable Living
We are delighted to introduce our new lunch pack of beeswax food wraps. This pack includes three large square sizes which are ideal for families or you can rotate your wraps during your week. We have heard many people say they feel guilty using clingfilm for their lunches but it keeps their sandwich fresh! Well, isn't it great we now have a natural and reusable alternative that also keeps your sandwich fresh? Our beeswax wraps are made from organic cotton fabric which is infused with a blend of beeswax, organic jojoba oil and resin. They can last for up to 6 months or longer and have multiple uses. Our lunch sizes are ideal for covering and keeping fresh bowls of your leftover meals of food prepared in advance. I often use this size for wrapping a half soda bread. It seals to itself easily and keeps your sandwich and all its fillings intact.
Cleaning Your Beeswax Wrap
To clean your wrap wash or rinse with cold water and use a gentle eco-friendly washing detergent. If you use pestos or any other oil-based dressing try to keep in the centre of your sandwich to avoid spoiling your wrap. We suggest washing only if needed so your wrap will last longer.

We are delighted to have a stall at this year's Savour Kilkenny Food Festival. The festival takes place 22nd - 28th October and we will have a stall in the market this Saturday and Sunday.
Savour Kilkenny is now one of Ireland’s leading food festivals. The event celebrates local produce and food culture, local artisan products and a vibrant restaurant and café culture which has seen the area become a leading food destination.
The festival also features the fast-growing brewing and distilling industry locally with a craft beer and spirit tent on the Parade and expert tasting events taking place across the city too.
FOOD WASTE & HOW TO PREVENT IT
Also at the market, you can meet the team of Ireland's National Waste Prevention Programme - FoodWaste.ie and learn how we all can play our part in how we eat, produce and waste food and some of Kilkenny’s Master Composters who have undergone training throughout the year and established a community compost facility.
There will also be workshops, talks and kids events. For more information and to check out the line-up visit Savour Kilkenny. If you are visiting, come and say hello and learn about our beeswax food wraps - the natural, reusable alternative to clingfilm.
We are delighted to announce the launch of our new Raw Irish Honey.
Our honey is sourced from Irish bees that feed on Spring and Summer blossoms. It is 100% pure Irish Honey, with no unnecessary additives or external honey sources. All of our honey can be sourced back to the beekeeper and apiary.
Why Local and Raw Irish Honey?
When you buy from a local honey producer you know where your honey is coming from. Often in supermarkets, we think we are buying Irish honey when we are not. The labelling can be misleading. Our current batch of honey is coming from Offaly beekeeper Niall O'Reilly. It is raw & Irish and it tastes delicious.
With Raw honey some Crystallization may occur. This is a natural property of raw honey. To clear place in a bowl of hot water for a few minutes and stir.
Here at Millbee sustainability is central to our ethos. Our label is made from recycled paper and we used a water soluable adhesive so it's easier to remove and recycle your jar. Our honey is carefully packaged and delivered in recyclable cardboard boxes and wrapped in an eco-friendly paper alternative to plastic bubble wrap.
To celebrate the launch we are offering 5% OFF when you order two jars!
