EVA, an R&D and beekeeping support center

EVA, an R&D and beekeeping support center


EVA was created by Véto-pharma in 2015 with the aim of combining innovation, technics and education. This facility, dedicated to honey bees and beekeeping, is composed of a research and development center attached to a testing apiary of around 300 colonies, a honey extraction plant, and an educational space to raise awareness of the preservation of honey bees.

EVA is located near the center of Chaillac, in central France, close to the industrial site where its products are manufactured. This vast program, supported by the municipality, currently in the process of industrial redevelopment, is helping create local jobs and boost the economic development of a region surrounded by wooded groves and livestock.

GOLD partner of “Concours des Miels de France,” organized by UNAF


Véto-pharma has supported the French “Concours des Miels de France” (National Honey Contest) competition since its creation in 2018.

This annual event, organized by UNAF (French Union of Beekeepers) and the CNTESA (National Technical, Economic and Scientific Beekeeping Commission), rewards the quality of French honey and beekeeping excellence.

Juries composed of experienced beekeepers, tasting specialists (Meilleur Ouvrier de France pastry chefs and Michelin-starred chefs), journalists, and prominent figures determine the award-winning honeys in the various categories. Increasingly popular since 2018, the competition has recently added new categories, including gingerbread, nougat and mead.
