Because of fake Chinese honey, only 35 percent of honey produced by Hungarian producers can be sold on the EU market – Bross Péter, president of the National Hungarian Association of Beekeepers (OMME) told M1 news channel.

Bross Péter pointed out that two-thirds of the annual production, 25 to 30 thousand tonnes, are sold by Hungarian producers on the EU market where there is serious competition with producers who do not produce the honey fairly.

He emphasized that Hungary is a great bee-keeping nation, but the country’s honey consumption is under one kilogram, so the surplus should be sold abroad. (MTI)
