Forever in our Hearts

A tragic car accident in the Summer of 2014 took the life of Alessandro Esteves from us. He was traveling to visit 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 and cause of bee propolis.
His presence, constant smile, positive outlook, and vision will be always missed by us here at NaturaNectar, PhenolicFactory, and Apiary 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. Together we will bring the benefits of bee propolis to the USA and the whole world.
As we look back just to the short period since his passing, we cannot help but think how proud Alessandro would be of how far his vision has already reached.
We miss you friend,  


J.L. Paes-Leme (CEO) & D.J Rodrigues (CFO)
