Flow technology is a world-first invention which has revolutionised beekeeping, making backyard beekeeping much more accessible. It’s now possible to harvest pure honey straight from the beehive without opening it, making the process much easier for the beekeeper and much gentler on the bees. Invented by father and son team Stuart and Cedar Anderson, who thought “there has to be a better way…” 

After years of tinkering and testing, the Flow Hive was launched as one of the most successful crowdfunding campaigns in history. 5 years on, with over 85,000 Flow Hives in use in 130 countries around the world, we are growing our business and our team, while continuing to innovate.

We love bees, but really we’re about more than just this. Every member of our team is dedicated to utilising business for positive purpose, and we strive to keep this ethos at the forefront of all our business decisions. In 2018 we became B Corp accredited, joining a movement of businesses aiming to do good things for our planet. To date we have donated approximately $350,000 to support projects around the globe, and hope to continue using our platform to create a positive impact.
