Our Partners in Brazil: The Breyer Family
Beekeeping certificates, diplomas, and awards hang on the wall.
Their company is an example of how a private institution can help the communities and the environment. It is not rare to see school and excursion buses parked in front of their building, where they have a museum dedicated to beekeeping education, with all the equipment and even an observation hive. Every week, students, from kindergarten to university level, come together to learn about the importance of pollinators and their interaction with flowers, the economic potential of beekeeping and the importance of environmental protection. They also have incentive programs for university students that want to do research in bee-related topics.
Henrique Breyer admires the observation hive at their beekeeping museum.
Breyer believes that the interaction between private and public institutions through education is a key factor in order to promote environmental protection while generating economic benefits for the communities. They have been certified organic since 2002 and, along with their own hives, they coordinate more than 500 beekeeping families, which are integrated into their organic program.
Breyer's program helps many families. This is Floriano.
