The object of the British Beekeepers Association (BBKA) is to further and promote the craft of beekeeping and to advance the education of the public in the importance of bees in the environment.

The BBKA was founded in 1874 and originally brought together some 26
county beekeeping associations to represent their interests at government level
and to facilitate a nationwide educational structure supported by a common examination process.
