Queen Bee is in Stores Now!

We had an amazing event last week launching Queen Bee here in our local community of Chimaltenango. We advertised all the products Monte Cristo sells: coffee, fresh vegetables, metal work, wooden furniture, and last but not least- Queen Bee!

We’re so thankful for the way our Monte Cristo community has completely supported and encouraged the launch of Queen Bee. As one new product amongst many incredible Monte Cristo ventures, we’re confident that CEMOC will achieve it’s goal of self-sustainability in the next year and a half.
