Honey prices have fallen by 20 percent in one year, and over the past ten years decreased by sixty percent in euros – the president of the National Hungarian Beekeeping Association told M1 news channel on Tuesday.

Bross Péter added that cheap Chinese honey dominates the market: 85,000 tons came in last year, and its price has fallen by 11 percent.

For such little money, European beekeepers cannot produce honey, he said. (MTI)
