We're on a Mission to End Loneliness

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 revenue generated by our social enterprise operations.
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.
