Cooperativa Apistica Mediterranea
THE COOPERATIVA APISTICA Mediterranea (The Mediterranean bee-keeping Coop.) was founded in 1995 by Salvatorangelo Caboni, along with his son and some young and dedicated bee-keepers.
The Caboni family has a long tradition in bee keeping. They believed from the start that their passion could be not only a source of revenue but also a way of life in nature care and preservation.
Caboni grandfather, Salvatorangelo Deriu, was a pioneer apiarist and an innovator: at the beginning of the 50’s, he replaced the old beehives with the more efficient and modern ones, which can place the bees in the ideal condition for the production of large quantities of honey.
The grandfather’s skills were passed down to his heirs who not only continued his work, but also improved the characteristics of the structures, combining new technologies with the tradition and creating therefore a company that values both progress and care for the product. Several of our honey varieties won many prizes for their quality at regional and national levels and competitions.
In 2001 they received “ the organic honey” certification of by the Bioagricert of Bologna, the association recognized world wide and accredited whit the “IFOAM and NOP”.
The cooperation is in San Sperate, in the province of Cagliari, in a charming village known as the “village Museum” because of the painting decoration on the outside walls of the houses, and the numerous sculptures inside the village.
The production and packaging the 150.000 kg of honey, produced by the more then 1500 beehives, scattered all over the Sardinia island are supervised by highly qualified staff, assuring our well known top quality standard.
The cooperation is without any doubt the leader in production and protection of the Sardinia honey quality and tradition.
