E H Thorne (Beehives) Ltd, has secured one of the largest export orders for beehives anywhere in the world.

The Rand based firm has sent more than 1,500 Langstroth hives in kit form plus honey extractors, strainers, smokers and other beekeepers tools to The State of Eritrea, on the Red Sea, as part of an EU food project.

This large order has been loaded into four sea going containers in recent weeks and shipped out to East Africa.
