The BEESandAPPLE project is one of the biggest bee conservation initiatives ever to be launched in Europe. Our goal is to plant thousands of hectares of beautifully blooming flower meadows to create new habitat for billions of bees. The bee is essential for life on Earth. This humble creature symbolizes the importance of changing the way we think across all sections of society. A more responsible use of nature’s resources is more important now than ever.
The purpose of the BEESandAPPLE project is to give the bees a voice and to inspire people from all different countries to get involved. We want everyone to know how easy it is to make a difference. If we all pull together, we can make the world a better place every day! We are currently focusing on initiating, shaping and embedding change throughout society in order to increase environmental protection and promote sustainable living. We all need to be aware of how important a healthy ecosystem is for our lives and for future generations.
The world is changing and we have a responsibility to charter a course towards a bright and healthy future. Many prominent celebrities have been lending their support to this society-wide project, including tennis pro Dominic Thiem, Formula One world champion Sebastian Vettel, German top model Charlott Cordes, Hollywood star tattoo artist Mario Barth, NHL striker Marco Rossi (currently playing for Minnesota Wild), two-time ski world champion Lizz Görgl and Austria’s national football team coach Franco Foda.

International tennis star
Nature is amazing because it both fortifies and relaxes us. We must treat it carefully to ensure this remains the case. I support the BEESandAPPLE project because everyone in society needs to start thinking differently. We have caused a lot of problems, but together we can solve them too – and everyone can do their bit!
Four times F1 World Champion
Formula One racing and environmental protection are not mutually exclusive. We need to be bold enough to tread new paths if we want to deal with future challenges. I don’t want to merely enjoy the here and now; I also want to take responsibility and lead a sustainable life. I am supporting the BEESandAPPLE project because I believe that everyone can make a contribution.
International top model
The beauty of nature lies in its diversity, which we must preserve at all costs. Each and every one of us can play a part in preserving biodiversity. Even a window box full of flowers can provide important habitat for bees. I support the BEESandAPPLE project because I want to show that it is possible to both enjoy life and be responsible for the future.

Manfred Hohensinner, CEO
We were driven by our creativity, determination and enthusiasm when we founded Frutura in 1999. These attributes have served us well in our mission to provide Austria with the best fruit and vegetable produce possible while at the same time doing our utmost to protect the environment. We are proud that we have never strayed from this path and that we have achieved our goals. Today, my daughter Katrin is upholding these values and steering the company towards a bright future. She also firmly believes in the importance of never standing still and of tirelessly pursuing the goals we have set ourselves. As the initiators of the BEESandAPPLE project, our goal is to bring about a paradigm shift in society – we want to heighten awareness of the importance of bees and to re-establish their vital habitat. Only by taking small steps together can we take a great leap forward and ensure our planet remains habitable for the generations to come.
