Board Changes


The British Honey Company plc ( " British Honey " or " the Company " ) the producer of premium British honey, honey-infused spirits and alcohol sanitiser products, announces the following Non-Executive Board changes.

Mr Wafic Said is stepping down as a Non-Executive Director of the Company to devote more time to his many other business and charitable interests both in the UK and overseas.


Mr Martin Riley has also agreed to step down from the Board as a Non-Executive Director and is leaving the Company to pursue his other business interests.


The Company is pleased to announce the appointment to the Board of Mr Geoffrey Lennox as an independent Non-Executive Director. Mr Lennox, aged 64, has many years ' experience of e-commerce in the FMCG sector where, as Chairman of Intervino Limited, one of the UK ' s leading e-commerce personalisation, fulfilment and gifting solutions businesses, he has been instrumental in developing successful online marketing and fulfilment campaigns for brands including Coca-Cola, Johnny Walker, Dove, Marmite and Ferrero Rocher. Mr Lennox also brings to BHC expertise in developing international trading partnerships, where as a Director of Oil Consultants Limited, a global oil industry recruitment consultancy, he has developed a network of commercial partnerships and Joint-Ventures worldwide. 

  Commenting on the Board changes, Philip Seers, Non-Executive Chairman, said:

" On behalf of the Board, I would like to thank Wafic and Martin for their invaluable contributions to the development of the Company and wish them both well for the future.


" At the same time, I am very pleased to welcome Geoff Lennox to the Board as an independent Non-Executive Director. His appointment reflects the Company's strategic decision to focus increasingly upon online sales as consumers' purchasing habits continue to undergo a radical change away from the High Street. We see the continued development of our e-commerce business, together with the expansion of our international commercial partnerships, as key revenue drivers for the business. Geoff ' s proven experience in these fields will be a great asset to BHC as our business grows."

Notes to Editors


About British Honey Company

Launched in 2014, BHC is famed for its award-winning fruit and honey infused spirits, marketed under the Keepr ' s brand. Many of the Keepr ' s spirits are infused with BHC ' s proprietary British Honey from its fully traceable apiaries. The impressive spirits range with seasonal lines spans eight gins, four vodkas, two rums, two bourbons and a whiskey which is scheduled for release later this year. BHC ' s spirits are distilled onsite in the company ' s specially customised Still. In March 2020 BHC diversified its product range by developing its first alcohol sanitiser product in the UK in response to the Covid-19 outbreak.  This was produced using BHC ' s excess alcohol supplies and under authorisations obtained from HMRC to use denatured alcohol for alcohol sanitiser use.
