Brazil’s Honey: 4 Million Beehives, US$ 11 Million in Exports This Year

Brazilian exports of honey added up to US$ 10.8 million between the months of January and July this year. The state of PiauÀ­, in the Northeast of the country, holds the second position for sales in the international market, with US$ 1.6 million. The first place was the state of São Paulo.

Piauí­ is going to promote the XII Piauí­ Seminar on Apiculture, between September 1 and 3, at the campus of the Federal University of Piauí­, in the city of Parnaí­ba, located 318 kilometers away from Teresina, capital city of the state.


In the seminar, the capacitation of beekeepers will be discussed, as well as the adequate handling for breeding and preserving the bees and the economic and ecologic importance of the sector.


Of the honey produced in Piauí­, 80% comes from the semi-arid region. According to estimates of the Brazilian Apiculture Confederation, Brazil owned, in January 2004, about 4 million beehives producing 33,000 tons of honey per year. The information is from the Brazilian Micro and Small Business Support Service (Sebrae) News Agency.
