20.05.2019 : World bee day

Today, Monday, May 20th, is World bee day!

From 2016 to 2018, OLVEA set up several public/private partnerships and engaged human and financial resources in order to develop a beeswax supply chain in West Africa.

In 2 years, we have been able to:
Set up more than 8.500 hives in Burkina Faso and Mali,
Provide specialized apicultural kits and training on good agricultural practices to hundreds of beekeepers,
Test several business model for this supply chain.

Impacts of this supply chain:
Diversification of the producers’ incomes
Preservation of biodiversity

Bees plays a major role in the pollination and therefore,
in plant breeding and genetic diversity.
Let’s protect the bees & preserve our ecosystems!
