Our History

Honoring the Memory of Alessandro Esteves

Honoring the Memory of Alessandro Esteves

A tragic car accident in the Summer of 2014 took the life of Alessandro Esteves from us. He was on his way to visit the Federal University of Sergipe in the Brazilian Northeast to continue to oversee our research on bee propolis. Nothing motivated our friend and brother Alessandro more than developing research and advancing the knowledge of bee propolis.

His presence, constant smile, positive outlook, and vision will be always missed by us here at NaturaNectar, PhenolicFactory, and Apícola ALMAR in Brazil. But the legacy of his dreams will continue to move forward by a committed group of Partners and employees determined to honor his memory and vision of bringing the benefits of bee propolis to the USA and the world. 

Today we look back just to the short period since his passing, and cannot help but think how proud he would be with how far his vision has already reached. We miss you friend.  J.L. Paes-Leme (Co-Founder and CEO), D.J Rodrigues (Partner and CFO)

Brazil Shares its Natural Miracles with the World:

Brazil Shares its Natural Miracles with the World:

The beginnings of NaturaNectar and PhenolicFactory were conceived at the turn of the century when a visionary Brazilian entrepreneur, Alessandro Esteves, began work with Apiary ALMAR in the scenic northeast coast of Brazil. His work greatly impacted how the world would see a unique and intriguing new type of Brazilian bee propolis.

Inspiration and Results:

Inspiration and Results:

Motivated by a strong desire to add significance to his life, Alessandro Esteves partnered with top scientists from University of São Paulo, Brazil to ultimately discover a new type of propolis. This propolis would later become the foundation of this enterprise and one of the most promising natural substances ever investigated by science.

      

Add Decades of Experience to Create a Perfect Combination:

The Brazilian innovator crossed paths with a Brazilian-American Harvard graduate who had conquered the business world through Corporate America but also longed for an opportunity to make a positive difference in our world. 

A Common Purpose Found:

It didn’t take long for these men from different backgrounds to meet on common ground and combine their desire to add some significance to their lives and careers. The result is an enterprise that goes well beyond business as usual! NaturaNectar today already reflects the fruits of this labor of love!
