Apicoltura Amodeo Carlo


The Company Carlo Amodeo arises from the passion for honey and the world of bees. The company counts 1500 hives and it is structured in three laboratories: one is used for the storage of the supers which arrive from the different flowering areas, and also for the procedure of honey extraction and packaging of final products; a second laboratory is a sort of warehouse where hives are stored; the third one is most recent and its roof, covered with solar panels, produces the necessary energy to power  the refrigerator cell where the pots filled with honey are stored.
The Company Carlo Amodeo is situated in the country, near the slopes of San Calogero park, while the apiares are located thoughout Sicily. This is due to the fact that the company produces monofloral honeys and for this reason it is necessary to find large stretches of flowers of the same species.



Since 2008, thanks to Carlo Amodeo, a Slow Food Presidium has been started, in order to focus people's attention on the risk of extinction of the Apis mellifera siciliana (Black Bee), Sicilian native species. The sicilian bee risked the total extinction in the 70s, but fortunately, thanks to the studies and researches of the sicilian entomologist Pietro Genduso, the species has been saved. Pietro Genduso transmitted his passion to its pupil, Carlo Amodeo, who nowadays is the only breeder of sicilian queen bees and he is also enrolled in the national register.
Negli anni successivi al 2008 altri apicoltori si sono interessati a questa razza ed Staring from 2008 other beekeepers have taken interest in this species, and now the Presidium is composed of eight breeders who recovered the queen bees from Carlo Amodeo.
