Tout sur le miel de Xavier Renotte (Nectar & Co)

Nombreux d’entre vous ont déjà goûté les miels de Xavier. Des produits d’une exceptionnelle qualité et une gamme incroyable.
Apiculteur amateur depuis ses 12 ans, Xavier a entamé une carrière professionnelle dans un secteur porteur pour un jour tout plaquer et se consacrer à sa passion à temps plein. Il fait depuis partie du groupe des apiculteurs wallons qui vivent de leur métier. Ils sont 2.

Xavier exerce en fait deux métiers. Il est tout d’abord apiculteur et gère plusieurs colonies d’abeilles à Bruxelles et en Wallonie. Il commercialise son miel sous deux intitulés « miel de ville » et « miel de campagne » (photo = les ruches de Xavier devant le Parlement européen à Bruxelles). Il est habituellement impossible d’en avoir car pour le moment la demande dépasse allègrement l’offre. Sachant qu’en Belgique 75% du miel consommé est produit en dehors de l’Union Européenne, pourquoi n’y a-t-il pas plus d’apiculteurs belges et pourquoi les apiculteurs restent sous statut amateur ? Il y a d’abord le prix de revient. Les miels importés (venant surtout de Chine et d’Inde) sont achetés 1,29€/kg. C’est-à-dire moins chers que le coût de production d’un miel local. Ensuite, les conditions climatiques qui rendent aléatoire les volumes produits. Après, l’effondrement des colonies d’abeilles de souches européennes dont on a pas encore trouvé l’explication mais qui, depuis les années 2000, est responsable d’une mortalité des abeilles qui localement a pu atteindre 90% des colonies. Enfin, l’impossibilité d’appliquer chez nous des labels reconnus (bio, AOC, etc.) qui permettrait de mieux valoriser les miels locaux et surtout, d’être concurrentiels par rapport aux miels importés.

C’est sur ce tableau là que Xavier a décidé de se positionner. En plus de ses miels locaux, il produit aussi des miels bio monofloraux en partenariat avec des apiculteurs italiens et français (photo = Xavier en visite en Italie). La législation européenne imposant, autour des ruches, un rayon de 3 kilomètres de cultures labellisées bio pour pouvoir labelliser les miels, il est pratiquement impossible d’en produire en Wallonie. Travailler avec des miels produits en France et Italie restant local comparativement aux miels bio des grandes surfaces qui proviennent surtout de Chine et du Brésil. C’est ce qui se cache derrière la phrase « miels UE et non UE » indiqués sur tous ces pots.
Résultat, Xavier arrive à vous proposer des miels bio ET monofloraux, c’est-à-dire qui proviennent majoritairement d’un seul type de fleur (citronnier ou thym ou carottes sauvages ou lavande) alors que nos miels locaux sont quasi exclusivement « toutes fleurs » (colza, ronces, trèfle, etc.).

Enfin, la grande particularité de Xavier est d’avoir investi dans une miellerie ultra équipée qui lui permet de mettre en pots ses miels dans des conditions optimales de température, d’humidité et de maîtriser idéalement la phase de cristallisation. Il en résulte des miels d’une onctuosité frappante et d’une stabilité de conservation incroyable.

Ce soir, c’est sûr, on rêve d’abeilles et de miel.

Also, is it really not ok to drink soy milk either?Thanks for your great blog.

  4. First off I want to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing. I’ve had difficulty clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Cheers!

    You know what works even better? Carry a gun and shoot the guy if he gets close to you! I always carry. I have a federal badge, but I still have a concealed handgun license. I am amazed that so many sheep will allow others to protect them, but they will do nothing to protect themselves. Where does the video or the story mention “Carry a gun and defend yourselves?” I dont rely on the government to protect me, and I work for it!VA:F [1.9.21_1169](from 0 votes)

  6. I like the writer’s viewpoints on this subject. It’s refreshing to know that there are people out there with passion in their beliefs. I can appreciate the points made here and I concur with many.

  7. The banks called in all the agricultural mortgages, and in most cases foreclosed on the farms putting thousands out of work. Some would rightly call it a jewish conspiracy, as it placed all monetary policy in their institutions. Was this answer helpful?
