Value Proposition

At Bzoo, we propose a new kind of beehive boxes that allow for simple bees motioning and easy honey extraction without much equipments or bothering the beets with things like bee smokers. Our beehive box system can be used by individual beekeepers as well as big farmers in order to scale their bees farms. In additional to easier monitoring, our boxes will allow beekeepers to drastically cut down on time labor and equipments. We consider the environmental impact of our system via the use of BPA-and BPS-free food grade plastic. Our vision is to allow honey flow without the need for any human/bee interaction. The bees fill the cells, cap them off then the beekeeper can view the filling stages through a transparent glass window to asses harvest timing without bothering the bees, resulting in an agrochemical-free and safe interaction.

VALUE PROPOSITION: At Bzoo, we propose a new kind of beehive boxes that allow for simple bees motioning and easy honey extraction without much equipments or bothering the beets with things like bee smokers. Our beehive box system can be used by individual beekeepers as well as big farmers in order to scale their bees farms. In additional to easier monitoring, our boxes will allow beekeepers to drastically cut down on time labor and equipments. We consider the environmental impact of our system via the use of BPA-and BPS-free food grade plastic. Our vision is to allow honey flow without the need for any human/bee interaction. The bees fill the cells, cap them off then the beekeeper can view the filling stages through a transparent glass window to asses harvest timing without bothering the bees, resulting in an agrochemical-free and safe interaction.

PROBLEM ADDRESSED: After carefully conducting a study on local beekeeping, honey production trends, methods and materials currently used, harvesting seasons and marketing; we have identified major deficiencies that we can optimize.
The beekeeping system in Morocco is at its infant stages, even with the existence of tremendous potentials to maximize the throughput of the local resources ‘’via medicinal and cosmetic use of rare local flora's’’.
First and foremost, we highlight that the current harvesting process is archaic, time consuming, requires skilled labor with costly equipment’s; also via improper application of pesticides, it might induce honey 
bee diseases or death, and when coupled with weather challenges and natural predators, this may deter many from investing into beekeeping.
Although many challenges are encountered, using our proposed solution and with availability of different types of naturally and cultivated plant species and water, high market for honey, this presents major incentives and opportunities for beekeeping development.

 

APPLICATION SOLUTION: The Bzoo system that we propose is a whole new way of extracting honey from honeybee hives. The beekeeper will nonetheless need to take care of the bees, yet he will be able to drastically cut down on time, labor and most importantly equipments and training expenses. We have also considered the environmental impact of our system via the use of BPA- and BPS-free food grade plastic. Our vision is to allow honey flow without the need for any human/bee interaction. The bees fill the cells, cap them off then the beekeeper can view the filling stages through a transparent glass window to asses harvest timing without bothering the bees, resulting in an agrochemical-free and safe interaction. Using a provided Key, the beekeeper splits the honey cells, gravity does the rest of the work, and the honey simply flows into the trough, through the tube and into your jar.
