The main advantage of our collecting areas is that there is no intensive agriculture, the people are practicing the agriculture for theirs own needs, mainly in the backyard of the houses. Being a region with hills and mountains, the intensive agriculture is not possible, anyway, the main activity for them is raising animals.

In Romania the type of bee which is bred is called Apis melifera carpatica and has a very gentle behaviour, which allows beekeepers to work in the bee yard without any protection.

The bee pollen is cropped on from the region of Transylvania- hills and mountains, far away from polluted areas. The main advantage of our collecting areas is that there is no intensive agriculture, the people are practicing the agriculture for theirs own needs, mainly in the backyard of the houses. Being a region with hills and mountains, the intensive agriculture is not possible, anyway, the main activity for them is raising animals.

In Romania the type of bee which is bred is called Apis melifera carpatica and has a very gentle behaviour, which allows beekeepers to work in the bee yard without any protection.

The bee hives, generally speaking, have around 100 bee colonies, it is very rare to see beekeepers with 200 bee colonies. This leads to the fact that the bee pollen is harvested from a large area and to the fact that there is a big floral multitude found in the pollen’s composition.

The collecting area is within the Carpathians, in the region well-known as Transylvania.

The internal work procedure:

Based on the special literature and on our observations, we put the basis for a collecting, transporting, stocking and drying system. This system proves to be very efficient in preventing the appearance of the butterfly larvae, this being the most frequent and serious problem of the dried pollen.

Beginning with 2005 this system proved to be very efficient, all such problems disappearing completely.

The pollen is identified by region, type, date of harvest, by beekeepers (traceability), by label and packaging inscriptions; this method offers us precise information about our product.

The beekeepers from our network have in custody deep freezer boxes distributed by us. Thus, the pollen is collected daily.

Immediately after collecting it, the beekeepers put the pollen in the deep freezer boxes at the temperature of – 18*C and store it here until we take it over. The time between two pollen acquisitions is 7-12 days.

The transport from the beekeepers to our warehouse lasts between 2 and 7 hours. After the transport the pollen cartons, palletized, are stored in a professional deep freezer box, having the capacity of 20-30 tones, at the temperature of -20*C. The pollen stays in the deep freezer box until it arrives to the next step: the drying process. The preservation of the pollen under such conditions prevents the appearance and development of the germs.

The drying process takes place in tunnels with warm air, +30*C, max. +40*C, with a very good ventilation, in 3 - 4 tonnes/ lot. The tunnels are specially built for this purpose and they have inside a controlled atmosphere. These conditions guarantee a uniform, continuous drying process and it lasts until the humidity of the pollen is within the parameters required by the client, humidity and excessive light, the bee pollen has a validity of 2 years from the moment between 3%-7%.

The pollen’s humidity degree is verified with a humidity meter, latest edition, purchased from Samap, France. (www.samap.fr)

As soon as the pollen is taken out from the tunnels it is hermetically packed in alimentary polyethylene bags, no longer being in contact with the humidity from the atmosphere.

Respecting these conditions and having an appropriate storing, far away from of drying.
