Ukraine now rivals Argentina as the world’s second largest honey exporter
Ukraine now rivals Argentina as the world’s second largest honey exporter, Anna Burka, consultant to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, or FAO, writes on Facebook. China has 19% of world honey exports. Ukraine and Argentina each account for 10%. Over the last five years, world trade in honey has grown by 18%, reaching 690,000 tons last year, with a total value of $2.4 billion. For Ukraine to add value to its exports, it needs to move from bulk to creating a brand and exporting bottled honey.
