Grandma’s is proud to have partnered with Bee City Canada, a non-profit organization committed to inspiring and engaging communities across Canada to take action to protect pollinators. The movement is growing and everyone can participate!
At Grandma’s, not only did we want to make candies that would be good for you, we also wanted to do good! Bettering ourselves and the world we live in is one of our founding values. We have decided to help save the bees and all pollinators because without them, we can say goodbye to most food items we find on our market stalls: apples, cucumbers, peaches, almond, and so on.
Why Protect the Bees
Pollinators (mostly insects) are essential to fertilize most plants. How? By harvesting and transporting pollen to plants. As such, pollinators are essential for providing the food that grows in our field and ends on our tables. They are also crucial in preserving the biodiversity of our habitats.
However, the modern use of pesticides and the lack of indigenous plant species and biodiversity have slowly but surely caused an important global declined in pollinator populations.
In order to prevent the total extinction of pollinators, we have decided to partner with different organisms and raise awareness.
