Local inventor of the flow hive Stuart Anderson will be presenting his innovation this week at the Seeds and Chips Global Food Innovation Summit in Milan, Italy.

Former US President Barack Obama will be the keynote speaker at the prestigious event where food and technology come together.

Hundreds of start-ups, food and tech companies, thought leaders and policymakers, converging to answer the challenge of making innovations in the global food system to serve a growing population.

‘The loss of species and ecosystems on our planet is an ongoing tragedy,’ said Anderson.

‘We all have a part to play rediscovering our place as part of this beautiful complexity, recognising the interconnectedness of all life on Earth.

For me, that’s what beekeeping has always been about. It’s like a drawbridge between humans and the natural world.

‘Learning to care for your bees, learning about what underpins bee colony health is vital and mirrors the care we need to take in environmental health.’

Stuart will be presenting his revolutionary ‘honey on tap’ technology which he developed with his son, Cedar Anderson. The flow hive allows beekeepers to harvest honey without opening the super and disrupting the colony and without the need for the extra space, heavy lifting and cumbersome equipment associated with conventional methods.
