As one of the main daytime pollinators of the world’s food supply, the bee represents a natural indicator of the health of the olive groves. To help bring attention to issues of climate change and the overuse of pesticides in agriculture, both of which threaten the world’s bee population, the producers of Nobleza del Sur chose the bee to represent their early harvest organic DAY extra virgin olive oil.
