Beekeeping in Greece is a traditional, dynamic economic sector with an upward trend. The quality of the products produced, as well as their reputation within the country and abroad, is a guarantee for its further development. In our country, 18,000-20,000 tons honey is produced every year, not to mention other relating to honey products.
According to EL.G.O. “DIMITRA”, beekeeping is one of the most important sectors of primary production for our country. Approximately 23,000 beekeepers are working in this sector, with about 5,000 of them holding more than 150 hives each and are considered as professional beekeepers. Many other people are also engaged in this field subsidiary as amateurs at the same time.
Wanting to strengthen the beekeeping industry as exports in relation to imports, we welcome the exchange economy with services and products concerning our sector by helping professionals and amateurs.
