EDOCAM Bee Farming Project started in 2010. So far, we have two different bases, one at Mabonji and the other at Frank Harcourt Secondary School Mile One, Kumba, all in the South West Region of Cameroon.

A Professional Italian beekeeper, Mr. Carlos Bertoni was brought all the way from Italy to Cameroon by the director of EDOCAM & SONS COMPANY LTD, Prince Disonge Elton Aitkins, to train Cameroonians on how to carry out Modern Bee Farming using the European boxes. This is because for ages, Cameroonian Bee Farming has been limited to the Kenyan top bars system. EDOCAM & SONS COMPANY LTD stands as one of the Companies in Central African Republic carrying out this modern system of Bee Farming.
EDOCAM & SONS COMPANY LTD offers FREE training on Modern bee farming through:
