"I would like to talk about the positive contributions of the 'Contracted Beekeeping' model to the beekeeping industry. With the Contracted Beekeeping model, a traceable production and control process is carried out from the hive to the table. Our agricultural engineers physically go and control every apiary under the agreement. We pay attention to whether the apiary is located in areas with clean water sources, where there is no waste and factories around, away from the highways. Pesticides are not allowed to be used. Thus, we can ensure each bee product is free from pesticides and chemicals and has the highest quality on the market. In addition, this model is an important Good Manufacturing Practice to protect bees and beekeepers concerned about selling their products. Since our contracted beekeepers have become a part of our family with the guaranteed sale of their products from the very beginning, we do not compromise on high quality in production. We support the production of bee products and beekeepers who are part of our family. We transfer 1% of our revenue to our contracted beekeepers for sustainable beekeeping for equipment and materials to improve their beehive numbers and production yield. We work like bees to produce innovative and high-quality 100% natural bee products with patented extraction technology by using ingredients sourced from the pristine Anatolian Mountains, which are home to 12,000 different plant species. It has been a great source of pride for us to be deemed worthy of an award with our three products in the innovation category of one of the most prestigious beekeeping awards. I want to thank everyone who contributed to our success."
