EU apiculture sector

Event date: 18/01/2018

The beekeeping sector is an integral part of European agriculture, providing over 500 000 EU citizens with their main income or additional earnings.

Every year, the EU's 600 000 beekeepers and their 16 million beehives produce 200 000 tonnes of honey. This is not however sufficient to cover demand on the EU market, and the shortfall is made up by imports, above all from China. Threats to bee health and market competition make the economic viability of apiculture a critical matter. EU policies aim therefore to address these issues and promote beekeeping, an activity that is of vital importance to the environment.
