Sustainable innovation for the benefit of honey bees, beekeeping and people!
Developing new solutions to address the various challenges in the beekeeping industry is a key focus of our Véto-pharma strategy and has been one of our commitments for more than 25 years.
To effectively address these issues, Véto-pharma devotes between 8 and 10% of its resources each year to innovation.
In 2021, the beekeeping innovation team relocated its research centre to EVA (Honey Bee Centre, or Espace de Valorisation de l’Abeille), an area dedicated to promoting honey bees set up by Véto-pharma in Chaillac, in central France, with the aim of stepping up its research into new active substances to fight varroa. This establishment that has worked to support and promote bees and beekeeping since it opened in 2015 houses the technical and operational centre of its testing apiary.
A fast-moving environment born of new challenges. Véto-pharma is a laboratory dedicated to the health of the honey bee, an insect that is vital for biodiversity. As such, we focus our research and development on an innovative range of safe, high-added-value products and services, meeting both quality requirements and environmental concerns.
