  • Famille Mary’s commitment for bee protection :

French honey is a rare food product !

For many years, honey harvest is decreasing  in France. It has reduced by 50% in 15 years (14 000 tons in 2013 against 33 000 tons in 1995).  There are hardly acacia, thyme, rosemary, barely more rape, fir tree, sweet chesnut !

The mortality of bees is constantly rising : from 15% to 30% according to regions.

80% of vegetable varieties are depending on bees !

The pollination of 200 000 flowering plant varieties (80%) are depending on bee. Apples, tomatoes, apricots, pears… are threatened  if the bee disappeared. It is worrying  both for gourmands, but also for the environment, and for farming, whose entire parts depend on gathering insects.

 

 

Famille MAry is involved in bee protection and beekeeping sector’s support

Famille Mary has launched in September 2014 a supporting action by donating 1% of honey sales to the French Union of Beekeepers, (30 000€ minimum), that is to say 1 honey jar bought = 1% for bees ! The French Union of Beekeepers (UNAF) is the first beekeeping union in France. It gathers 22 000 beekeepers, organizes regular actions for the  pollinating fauna, biodiversity and environment protection, and it is a technical support for beekeepers… www.unaf-apiculture.info
