The Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York is offering a salad dressing made with honey from harvested bee hives housed on the building’s green roof, Trade Show News Network reports. The honey-infused vinaigrette, Jacob’s Honey, is being made with the help of New York City Beekeeping. The hives are part of the center’s sustainability program to reduce energy consumption throughout the building and protect wildlife in Manhattan. “The success of our sustainability program epitomizes our rebirth as an organization, and this first batch of honey illustrates how far we have come in our efforts to reduce energy, create a wildlife haven and improve the quality of life in our neighborhood,” said Alan Steel, President and CEO of the New York Convention Center Operating Corporation, which runs the Javits Center.
