Country produces 10,000 tons of honey annually

ISLAMABAD: In Pakistan annual production of honey is about 10,000 tons and about 15 to 20 percent of the honey is lost due to the ignorance of the collectors and traditional beekeepers, a statement said on Wednesday.

The traditional beekeepers have very little knowledge about the extraction and processing of honey and they need proper training to produce maximum honey, Pakistan Agriculture Research Council (PARC) said in the statement.

National Agriculture Research Centre’s Honeybee Research Institute organises training courses for the beekeepers to teach them the production of good quality honey.
