Bulgaria’s honey production to drop to less than 10,000 tonnes this year 09/13/2017 | By Petia Krasteva, EMIS Editor

Bulgaria exports 70-75% of honey output

Bulgaria is likely to produce less than 10,000 tonnes of honey this year, BTA English Service reported in an interview with Union of Bulgarian Beekeepers (UBB) Chairman Mihail Mihailov. The output will be lower than last year’s one of 10,500 but looks well as compared to the average as the annual honey production in Bulgaria varies between 6,000 and 12,000 tonnes.

Bulgaria exports some 70-75% of the produced honey, mainly to the EU markets. There are some 19,000 beekeepers in the country but their number has been constantly decreasing, Mihailov noted.
