Posted on 13th December 2019

It’s been another busy year at BIO Productions ( says Angela Gill.

So far in 2019, we have filled 255,348 x 5L bottles – that’s 1,276,740L of product to be precise, or roughly 1.3 million litres. Or if you prefer, that’s enough to fill 3.6 million tea cups, 2.25 million pints of beer, or 16,000 baths.

That’s a lot of liquid, and heavy too. Because 1 litre of water weighs 1 kg, it means we have produced the equivalent weight of 319,185 cats, 1,702 cows, or 365 Indian elephants (after all African elephants are bigger!

Each well planned members meeting enables good networking opportunities and speakers that are relevant to the present climate and local issues. We are proud to be members of BHBPA."
