SPX Flow,  a Charlotte, NC company that designs and creates manufacturing process for the nutrition, health,and industrial markets is launching a beehive pollination project along its corporate headquarters tree line, according to a press release. 

“We’re a company whose technologies feed the world, so it fits perfectly into our sustainability focus as bees pollinate two-thirds of the world’s crops,” said Jennifer Honaker, SPX FLOW’s Charlotte facilities manager.

The press release states that in recent years, bee populations have been under threat. According to the United Nations, “nearly 90% of the world’s wild flowering plant species depend, entirely, or at least in part, on animal pollination, along with more than 75% of the world’s food crops and 35% of global agricultural land.”

When ready for harvest, SPX FLOW plans to sell excess honey in its Marketplace cafeteria on-site and incorporate the honey harvest into cafeteria meals. The project adds to already established initiatives on-site that include a food compost program, LED lighting, as well as Energy Star and LEED building certifications.
