The buzz on this sweet collaboration between SkyCity and For the Love of Bees 

News story
Thursday 5 Mar 2020

We love to see city centre neighbours doing business - and this new collaboration between SkyCity and For the Love of Bees really takes the cake.

If you're not familiar with them, For the Love of Bees is a charitable trust and a collaborative city centre project seeking to make Auckland the world's most bee-friendly city through education, events and activations - all based around a collection of living beehives at Victoria Park. 

SkyCity has partnered with For the Love of Bees, sponsoring one of the beehives at Victoria Park. SkyCity's Orbit restaurant is using the honey from this hive to create a special 'For the Love of Bees' dessert - made with honey & cinnamon mousse, honey crumble and citrus orange cream.

Made with honey & cinnamon mousse, honey crumble and citrus orange cream, the special dessert is now on the menu at Orbit, with $1 from each dessert going to For the Love of Bees.

"It made sense to support this important community to beautify our city and support the bee colonies to help make Auckland a pollinator sanctuary. The team at For The Love of Bees has committed to planting 1 billion flowers to support the hive in Victoria Park.”

- Marty Kindleysides, Executive Chef at SkyCity Entertainment Group

One dollar from each dessert is re-invested into the partnership, supporting the hives, bee keepers and the flowers needed to support each hive!

"We're so proud to be championed by SkyCity who sponsor our bee hives in Victoria Park, turning our honey into desserts as an awareness-raising tool for pollinator and ecosystem health in the city."
