Buzz is a community-focused, sustainable and super sweet initiative from Uber, that The Breeze Auckland is right behind.
Bees are responsible for pollinating almost a third of the foods we eat, yet the honey bee population is in decline and they need our help by planting more floral fuel to keep them going. Every day hundreds of local restaurants in Auckland partner with Uber Eats to feature dishes on their menus that celebrate the work bees are most famous for - honey.
Head to the Breeze Auckland Facebook page and check out the team visiting some amazing Restaurants that Uber Eats has helped install hives providing a direct source of produce for honey-loving local Auckland restaurants.
Uber Eats has helped install hives providing a direct source of produce for honey-loving local Auckland restaurants like Bowl & Arrow, Boy & Bird, Happy Boy, and Moustache Milk & Cookie Bar team up with experts BeesUpTop to create bespoke honey dishes and sell jars of homegrown honey & seedling packets through their restaurant on the Uber Eats app, for a limited time.
Uber is well known for helping get people, products, and produce from A to B(ee) and now we’re going to help create more floral fuelling stations for our local legends (the bees) so they can keep pollinating our delicious foods!
Every day hundreds of local restaurants in Auckland partner with Uber Eats to feature dishes on their menus that celebrate what bees are most famous for - honey.
Uber Eats, Head of Cities ANZ, Luke Mulholland, “Given the humble bee is responsible for pollinating almost a third of the foods we eat, their importance cannot be underestimated, especially when we look at how many restaurants on our platform rely on fresh, local produce”.
“We’re delighted to help these four restaurants sustainably source an important ingredient, with all the honey produced in the hives flowing back to the restaurants, reducing the cost of a key ingredient but no doubt delighting eaters across Auckland.”
Restaurants will also be selling honey jars alongside seed kits for the community so that with each honey jar purchased on Uber Eats, Aucklanders will be able to plant their own ‘bee buffet’ in their gardens at home.
Bees Up Top, Director and Beekeeper, Jessie Baker, “New Zealand has already led the way in creating various hives in urban areas, but we are increasingly seeing that more flowers in the suburbs are needed to create pollinating pit-stops for the bees, en route to rooftop hives”
“We need to be planting more flowers for our buzzing friends to pollinate, they’re very much attracted to the colour blue so flowers like lavender work best” adds Jessie.
Aucklanders can get their hands on 300ml jars of homegrown honey and the sachet of seeds exclusively at these restaurants on the Uber Eats app for $13.
Users will need to look out for the emoji next to the restaurants on the app to purchase their own honey and search for specially curated honey dishes available directly by searching Boy & Bird, Happy Boy, Bowl and Arrow and Moustache Milk and Cookie Bar.
While Uber’s platform is always here to get people, products and produce from A to B across Aotearoa, this offering will only be getting Aucklanders from A to Bee, for a limited time.
So get buzzing while stocks last, because that amber nectar won’t stick around.
