Beehive Industries has been on a mission to end loneliness in Sydney’s inner-city for almost 50 years. Today, we support more than 250 seniors, long term unemployed and people living with a disability through the business of social procurement.
As a not-for-profit social enterprise, we offer more than high quality mail house, fulfilment and packaging services. We offer you the chance to engage in business with purpose – the purpose of making a difference in the lives of those in need.

Beehive Industries is committed to delivering professional business solutions while providing a purpose for people living with disadvantage. With broad industry experience and extensive networks, you can trust us to deliver a great result - for you and for the community.
From online fulfilment of retail orders to sample packing and distribution, we specialise in storing, processing and distributing your goods. Ask us to develop a custom solution for your specific requirements.
Need help collating materials for your next conference, trade show or promotional activity? Our enthusiastic team will take care of the assembly line while you focus on the main event.
The Value of Social Procurement
Social procurement offers value far beyond the bottom line. Your choice to secure our business services enables you to make a positive social impact by facilitating support programs that are vital for reducing social isolation and improving mental health.
Our support users enjoy free breakfast, morning tea and lunch, as well as fresh take-home fruit and vegetables for nutritional support. Healthy eating is also encouraged through our popular 'Low Cost Meals for Seniors' program.
Our 'Beehive2Work' program offers work experience and training to the long-term unemployed and people with a disability. Digital literacy and ESL classes are also offered to reduce barriers to community participation.
Our support users participate in social outings to experience Sydney’s beautiful beaches, parks and gardens. We also host special events to celebrate occasions such as Mother’s Day, Melbourne Cup and Christmas.
