Myanmar exported approximately 700 metric tons of honey in the past four months (April-July) in the 2022-2023 financial year, according to the Apiculture Division under the Livestock Breeding and Veterinary Department.
Myanmar delivered honey to the Republic of Korea, Japan, the US and Singapore by sea during the April-July period. Out of four honey varieties, jujube honey was highly demanded. Niger honey, sunflower honey and honey of various flowers were also exported. The honey export volume is estimated at 691.34 metric tonnes.
There are 31 State-owned beekeeping stations with 6,200 beehives in 31 townships and about 820 private beekeeping businesses operating with nearly 200,000 beehives. Apiculture and honey production businesses are primarily found in Sagaing, Mandalay and Magway regions and Shan State.
Moreover, two million acres of crops yearly contribute to bee pollination every year. This year, 11 per cent of sunflower acreages are designated for pollen sources. Additionally, beekeeping businesses near the crop fields contribute to the successful yield of the crop as well as quality honey production.
Myanmar annually produces about 7,000 tonnes of honey, with a production capacity of 70 pounds per beehive. Approximately 2,600 tonnes of honey are conveyed to foreign markets every year. Myanmar’s honey is priced at $1,600 per tonne. – NN/GNLM
