At Koster Keunen, we are proud of our worldwide sustainability initiative.  We are focused on our commitment to the people who harvest our beeswax. The world should see what beekeepers do and how their trade supports people as well as the health of the bees.

The BBC StoryWorks video, “Hive of Industry,” highlights Koster Keunen’s program of education and collaboration with West African beekeepers. It shows beekeepers and their environment along with the positive changes that are now possible in these regions. With this program, wax is a source of income to benefit their families and their community.

We Are All One Hive™

Using sustainable beeswax supports hundreds of thousands of people and keeps millions of bees healthy. Learn more below.


We are committed to continuing to bring sustainability to those we supply, so we can all raise the standards of doing business above simply meeting the bottom line. Contact us today for ideas and formulations that can help you to meet your brand’s sustainability goals.
