The Virtus honey project started in 2021, with the installation of multiple beehives on the site. The purpose of introducing bees in the environment of our Robilante was not solely to produce honey, but also to organise an environmental biomonitoring project in collaboration with Apicoltura Beeo. This organisation gathers knowledge to ensure the natural survival of bees. They teamed up with our Sustainability team, who were interested in the effect of the site’s environment on the bees’ health and the quality of the honey.
