The two companies, together with the Institute of Apicultural Research, Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences (IAR CAAS), one of the leading apicultural research institutes in the world, formed a strategic alliance in Beijing on April 21.

In particular, the three organizations together plan to experiment with two programson Golden Wing Mau’s blueberry and kiwi demonstration farms, namely,Operation Pollinator and installing hives on the farms.
