Mandatory Standards for Honey in the MakingMandatory Standards for Honey in the Making

A regulation that mandates standards for honey production will come into effect in the current Iranian year (started March 20), in collaboration with the Institute of Standards and Industrial Research of Iran, according to the executive of the Agriculture Ministry’s “Apiculture Expansion Project”.
“Honey production based on mandatory standards will help prevent synthetically-made and low quality honey from entering the market. Many people are taking advantage of the honey market by producing fake honey,” Moshir Ghaffari was also quoted as saying by the news portal of the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting, adding that it is very difficult and costly to distinguish original honey from fake.
The official noted that the Agriculture Ministry has asked knowledge-based companies to help identify natural and fake honey through more cost-effective methods.
