Benoit Mary’s word (CEO of Famille Mary)
“From this unique and essential link between nature and mankind, I have drawn 5 fundamental values that define our beekeeper profession : transmit our passion for bees and the benefits of their treasures, respect the environment and be in harmony with bees and nature, create a long-term relationship with our beekeeper network to offer the best honey, design and invent the future to insure the durability of our company and keep the proximity with our loyal customers on the French territory. Our mission is to contribute to life balance thanks to the bees’ products & the nature, respecting the planet.
