Calling Home: Andrew Cory in Alofi, Niue

From Sunday Morning, 7:43 am on 18 October 2020

In 1999 Andrew Cory saw a postage-sized advertisement in the NZ Beekeeping magazine saying the Niue Honey Company was up for sale. When he landed on the island he was driven to a jungle, where dozens of decades-old hives were buried within masses of vines - but after seeing the Italian bee stock within, he decided to take a punt. Over the years, Andrew has grown the honey company into an international award-winning venture and even started a South Pacific bee sanctuary on the island.
