About Bee Green Food Wraps

Hi, I'm Pia, a 30 something, wife, early childhood teacher and mum to three boys and one baby girl living in rural Waikato.

Pia and Baby Demi

A few years ago now, I bought a reusable beeswax wrap for my cheese, I thought it was such a fantastic idea but after about one month I was left very disappointed when it no longer stuck, and wasn’t doing the job of keeping my cheese fresh.

I got together with my mum and hatched a plan to try and make some ourselves but to make them better! We started researching and with a lot of trial and error we kept testing different methods until we got the wraps just right.

Our first customers were family and friends who gave such positive feedback that we felt we had something worth sharing and we started doing markets and expos and now we are selling online!

I love helping people reduce their waste and live more sustainably, and I’m constantly learning ways I can make small changes too. I love being able to work from home in my little workshop, around the kids routine.

While the baby sleeps during the day I’ll be busy waxing wraps with the baby monitor nearby, and in the evening once the kids are asleep I’m processing and packaging orders.

My mum is a huge help, and almost always with me helping at markets and expos. It’s a real family affair.

We'd love to hear from you with any feedback, questions, special requests, or to chat about wholesale or fundraising for your school or club, please get in touch any time!
