This partnership ensures the preservation of The Honey Pot Co.’s core values and vision. Beatrice Dixon will continue to lead as CEO and Chief Innovation Officer, with existing owners retaining a significant stake, ensuring continuity in the brand’s mission and facilitating a seamless transition toward accelerated growth.
Beyond reshaping the industry, the partnership aims to enhance the accessibility of natural solutions.
