Bees for the forest

Our motto:

Bees pollinate flowers: families harvest honey and live in harmony with the forest

We are actively involved in “Meliponiculture”, characterized by the care of bees native to Brazil, belonging to the Meliponid and Trigonid families.

The great advantage of these bees is that they have no stinger. This means they don’t sting, so hives can be set up around houses and honey harvested without the need for special clothing. All members of the family, from grandparents to grandchildren, can take part in this activity.

There are around 350 native bee species in Brazil, most of them living in the Amazon Rainforest. The social life of most of them is still poorly understood. We are currently supporting projects involving around 25 bee species in 10 regions of Brazil.

Our contribution consists of providing hives, training courses and support for product marketing.

This bee program contributes to sustainable development by enabling renewed use of natural resources, increased protection of forests and financial support for families.
