This week Fraser was delighted to have the opportunity to pitch his new project SuperHoney to Jerry Greenfield of Ben & Jerry’s as part of their competition called ‘Join Our Core’.
SuperHoney is a new project that will be putting beehives into schools, scout halls and community gardens all over the country, giving kids a chance to learn about bees, the environment and sustainable food and drink. The honey that is produced will then be sold through SuperJam’s existing 2,000+ supermarket outlets, raising funds to build even more community beehives.
Jerry and the other judges loved Fraser’s ideas and they will be sending him (along with 14 other social entrepreneurs) to Uganda in August to visit the Fairtrade cooperative that produces vanilla for the ice cream!

At the age of 14, Fraser Doherty was taught to make jam by his Grandmother and started selling homemade jam at farmers’ markets in Scotland. The rest is history as Fraser, now 23, became the youngest ever supplier to a major supermarket chain when Waitrose launched the range in March 2007. SuperJam now supplies over 2,000 supermarkets around the world.
