Flowers are the beautiful words and hieroglyphics of nature,
with which she implies us how much she loves us!

(Johann Wolfgang von Goethe)

The keepers of this magic are our bees. Mindfully, they ensure that no flower opens in vain.

Thanks to the bees, we can enjoy fruits, vegetables, nuts, honey and herbs - foods that rely on the pollination and immense work of our bees.
 
Just as the bees produce the best honey, we work passionately on the best GANTER Collection every season.

Life in the beehive

One bee can´t make honey on its own. Only when its humming and buzzing in the entire beehive and when every bee knows what to do,
they can turn flower nectar into golden honey.

The worker bees do the essential work in the bee colony. There is a appropriate division of labor among them, coordinated to their age.

The drones have only one job in their lives to mate the queen. They represent a relatively small proportion of the beehive and are only found during the reproduction phase in the bee colony.

The queen bee is solely responsible for the offspring. She differs from the other bees by size and shape.

an active contribution to the protection of our bees

 
Bees among to the most important creatures of our world. These industrious insects we owe 1/3 of our food and 80% of fruits and vegetables. But bee mortality is progressing dramatically, millions of them are dying each year. If we also want to bite heartily into an apple, snack sweet cherries or enjoy colourful salads, we have to help the bees.
 
Because the bees need us - and we need the bees.
