About The Event

Andy Pedley will give a talk on 'Beekeeping and Food Safety'

Andy has been keeping bees for 30 years, and as an EHO developed an  interest in the law on food safety  as it applies to bee keepers and  honey production about 10 years ago, realising that there was a fair  amount of misinformation and traditional, but not always good, practice,  among bee keepers. In 2009, he authored a series in BeeCraft on the  Food Safety Legislation, and has authored other relevant articles for  them too – on the Honey Regulations and Recycling jars.

He’s recently worked more on the nuts and bolts of food safety for  bee keepers, and has presented talks on this, and the Food Safety law as  it applies to bee keepers at the National Honey Show workshops and to  local associations. Northern Bee Books have asked him to produce a book,  and this is now in final draft – it may well be available by the  meeting.

Andy is currently the Training Apiary Manager for Oxfordshire BKA;  this gives him responsibility for 10 colonies there as well as his own 7  in various apiarys around Oxfordshire.
