Camile Thai Kitchen Joins Fight To Save Ireland's Only Native Honeybee

Camile Thai Kitchen has announced details of a three-year partnership with Irish-owned beekeeping company and community OpenHive, supporting over 100,000 threatened Irish honeybees.


This partnership will see the Irish-owned restaurant group invest in the development of OpenHive infrastructures to help protect the native Irish honeybee, using the raw honey produced by these special native pollinators for the sustainable development of a series of delicious new dishes.

Statement By Camile Thai Kitchen Managing Director

Camile Thai Kitchen managing director Daniel Greene stated, "Sourcing local produce and working with local producers is at the heart of our sustainability and community-focused goals, so we're thrilled to launch this exciting new partnership with OpenHive and to be working so closely with [OpenHive co-runner] Jack [McGrath] and the team on a shared vision to drive positive change in local communities across Ireland.

"As a business we're always looking for new ways to develop more sustainable food systems and challenge climate change, so this partnership was the natural next step for us. Through this initial three-year programme we’re both hoping to support over 100,000 endangered Irish honeybees but also to serve-up a series of new healthy menu offerings using this locally sourced quality ingredient from our very own sponsored hives."
