Trade Area

We supply heritage sites, independent gift shops, galleries, museums large and small, farm and eco shops, trusts and charities across the UK.  Ten years on from starting out, we know our customers value ethically-produced goods made with a respect for the planet. Their choices are not driven by large brand marketing or discounts, they seek natural and hand-made at a sensible price. They appreciate the story of a successful small business, grounded in the British countryside. Read more on the History & Story page.

We welcome new wholesale enquiries. Get in touch at sales@filbertsofdorset.co.uk to request a trade price list and samples. For a list of who we supply, visit our stockists page.

How we work

  • As beekeepers, it is in our interest to consider the environmental impact of everything we do, buy and use.
  • Our About Us page sets out our values regarding ingredients and production.
  • On a daily basis, we aim to reduce, reuse and recycle, whether building a barn or making a balm.
  • We sort waste materials; we reuse packaging; we recycle glass, aluminium and plastic ingredients packaging.
  • We pour our balms, salves and polishes into UK-made aluminium or steel tins. These can be reused or recycled. Our gifts come in metal tins or in kraft boxes, UK-made with recycled pulp.
  • Our kraft gift boxes, wraps, cards, POS standups, tags and labels are printed onsite or within our region, on recycled material or within the FSC or UK Woodland Carbon Code.
  • Our packaging materials are in line with the standards required for COSMOS certification – aluminium, paperboard, polyethylene (tin lid liners) and PET honey jars.
  • Increasingly, we use paper labels. In 2019, our focus is on sourcing suitable paper labels for all products.
