Last Year’s Honey Production at 81,500 Tons

Some 81,500 tons of honey were produced in Iran in the last fiscal year (ended March 20, 2017), says Deputy Agriculture Minister Hassan Rokni, adding that the figure is expected to rise 5.5% to reach 86,000 tons in the current year.
“A total of 993 kilograms of royal gel were produced in the country last year, priced at 50 million rials (about $1,330) per kilogram,” Rokni was quoted as saying by IRNA.
The official added that per capita honey consumption in Iran stands at about 1 kg while the global annual average is 250-300 grams.
According to Abdolreza Bigonah, the head of National Association of Beekeepers and Honey Producers of Iran, local production of honey is sufficient to meet domestic demand.
“Thanks to the diversity of flora, climate and nature of its terrain, different types of honey can be produced in Iran,” he was quoted as saying by the Persian daily Forsat-e Emrouz.  
About 75,000 people are active in Iran’s beekeeping industry.
