Myanmar exported approximately 1,157.31 tonnes of honey worth US$1.736 million in the past five months (April-August) in the 2023-2024 financial year, said U Myo Tint, the deputy director of the Apiculture Division under the Livestock Breeding and Veterinary Department, Nay Pyi Taw.
Myanmar has delivered honey to the Republic of Korea, Japan, China, the US, Canada and the ASEAN countries at the price of $ 2,500 to $3,000 per tonne and the yearly demand is nearly 3,000 tonnes.
“The major destinations of honey from Myanmar are Thailand, China, Japan, and the ROK where jujube honey is most exported.
The jujube honey is produced between September and October and it is the largest produced kind of honey in Myanmar taking nearly 60 per cent of all kinds of honey produced locally.
Niger honey production is the second largest in Myanmar and takes some 20 per cent,” U Myo Tint said.
Myanmar produces sesame honey, jujube honey, niger honey, sunflower honey, rubber honey, lychee honey and flower honey from nearly 200,000 beehives bringing yearly yield to about 5,000 tonnes.
Myanmar saw more than 820 private beekeeping businesses in 2022-2023 financial year and more than 130 businesses are registered in 2023-2024 FY, bringing the total to more than 950. — ASH/TH
