Cuban Beekepers Increase Honey Production
According to Bruno Garcia Castro, head of the apiculture business in this province, despite the rehabilitation of only 40% of the hives lost, over 400 tons of honey have been already collected this year, when 665 tons of the product are scheduled.

Future investments are planned for this province’s honey-processing plant that deals with 60% of the honey produced in the country.  

 Cuban honey is partly set for the substitution of imports since it’s very much used both in the pharmaceutical and beauty industry. On the other hand, one ton of honey is sold 1 500 to 1 600 in the international market.

Experts affirm that honey production in Cuba could be increased up to nearly 10 000 tons taking into consideration current producing reserves.
