Koster Keunen West Africa

The place where we execute our Sustainability Program

Preserving our Earth, Bees and Biodiversity with Sustainably Sourced Beeswax.

The act of bee pollination is a key factor that keeps flora and fauna in balance. Healthy trees and plants prevent climate change, desertification, and soil erosion. Sustainable beekeeping helps with preserving and supporting a biodiverse ecosystem.

Commitment in West Africa

In early 2019, Koster Keunen opened a new West African facility in Lomé, Togo, which is dedicated to our sustainable beeswax initiative.  Our Sustainable Beeswax supply chain in West Africa is a long-term commitment with cooperative and beekeeper groups. We are structuring, training and improving the good practices of beekeepers in multiple nations. The results of this work can be seen in the quality of wax produced, the recurrent income at the local level and professionalization of the local beekeeping society.


Supporting the Foundations of Beekeeping

Our team located in West Africa includes an expert staff who are involved and present in the field and with the beekeepers.  We proudly fund safety programs and support coalitions donating specialized equipment to beekeepers.

We are fully engaged in creating a positive impact, starting in the flowers and fields, and focused on our three pillars:

  • Social
  • Economic
  • Environmental
