Businesses rely on the hard work of many people. Products travel through many pairs of hands, and every pair matters, from the beginning of the process to the end. At Koster Keunen, the mission is to help all contributors perform their work safely and with an equitable wage. With that in mind, our company increased its focus on specific sourcing locations of our raw beeswax in the early 2000s. It started as an effort to advocate human rights and eliminate sourcing in areas of child labor concerns. It has grown into an overall commitment to responsible sourcing through a program that focuses not only on the purest beeswax, but also on economic development, and safety and longevity for our valued beekeepers and their communities.
