“We have kept one profound promise made to all of our customers:
to deliver pure, authentic, traceable, sustainable, responsibly and ethically
sourced, premium products.”
LivRite is a story of 2 outsiders to the world of Apiculture. We wanted to create a brand unlike any other; with a product that is what it says it is! We searched for bottled honey that was truly honey; but couldn’t find any, so we created our own brand. Customers don’t have to be honey connoisseurs to taste the difference. Industry gospel says each jar should taste the same wherever, whenever you buy it. But our honey is happily inconsistent. Just like wine of vintages taste different, fruits each season taste and look different; so does honey taste and look different every season. Each taste great in their real form, which is more important than uniformity.
- Right the wrong of neglecting our Apiculture industry
- Right the wrong of suppressing the wellbeing of our bee- keepers and ecosystem
- Right the wrong of dominance of synthetic over authentic
- Right the wrong of habitual complacency as a lifestyle choice
- To bring back balance in the ecosystem by protecting & nurturing the honey bee; and increasing their population
- To support the beekeepers by ensuring a year-round income through our “Hive Alive” program
- To replace health damaging ingredients like sugar, palm oil, etc., with natural / safer ingredients; in order to combat life-long illnesses (cancer, diabetes, cholesterol, etc.)
- To enable the consumer to live healthy, as a lifestyle choice; by offering them credible alternative food options that are convenient and easily accessible
Note from Founder
“The unmet demand of benefitting from the consumption of honey; the lack of authentic, high quality unifloral honey offerings in the Indian retail market and absence of a wealth of knowledge about the benefits of honey and other apiculture products and most of all having the opportunity to facilitate good health and spread joy to numerous people through our products was the motivation behind setting out on this journey in the Apiculture space.
Offering our customers the opportunity to experience the goodness of our products gives us an immense sense of fulfillment and work satisfaction like no others.”
