Exports of Nicaraguan Organic Honey Growing

Between January and August this year, foreign sales have doubled compared to the same period in 2010.

Tuesday, September 27, 2011

$639,000 worth were exported in the aforementioned period, far surpassing the $304,000 in the first eight months of 2010.

The increase is explained partly by rising demand from Europe, mainly Germany, Belgium and England, which has encouraged Nicaraguan beekeepers to produce more.
An article in elnuevodiario.com.ni states: "Since 2008, when the highest level of honey exports was recorded ($1.1 million), being 93% to the European market (Germany), exports had declined by 50%, partly due to changes in demand from major buyers, especially Europeans. "
