Objectives and goals

At the bottom of the beekeeping carried out in some areas of the Emilia Romagna region there are virtuous practices that allow to obtain products with high intrinsic qualities both from an organoleptic and nutritional point of view and ethical contents such as respect for the wellbeing of insects and the environment in which they live.

The general objective of this project proposal is to measure, improve and promote these factors as distinctive elements of honey produced under qualitative conditions.
