It was back in spring 2019 that three queen bees and their colonies found their new home on the grounds of STAUB & CO. – SILBERMANN in Gablingen. The beehives were painted by the local kindergarten children and the day the bees officially moved in was celebrated together. There is even a bee display case that provides the opportunity to observe the busy bees up close at work. Not far away from the beehives, a flower meadow has been specially created for the bees to diligently collect their nectar.
Our bees have now settled in on the newly designed green areas and are starting their second season on our factory premises in Gablingen.
In cooperation with the beekeeping association Gablingen, we were able to harvest a total of 50 kg of honey in the first year.
Proceeds from the sale of the honey is doubled at the end of the season by STAUB & CO. – SILBERMANN and donated to alternating organizations. Most recently, we donated €1,100 to the charitable institution Klabautermann e.V. in Nuremberg.
By choosing to participate in this project, the company is keen to demonstrate its conscious and long-term contribution to sustainability. Protecting and conserving our environment is very important to us.
