Beekeepers have not closed a good year. Prices are depressed and last year’s yield has been moderate – Bross Péter, president of the National Hungarian Beekeeping Association told M1 news channel on Thursday morning.

He explained that two thirds of the honey produced in Hungary, about 20,000 tonnes, is sold abroad, and noted that the price of honey in euros has fallen by 30 percent over the last ten years.

He also said that last year there was very little acacia honey, because there was a lot of rain during the blossoming of the acacia flower, but the quality of the honey was perfect. (MTI)
