Beekeeping Enterprise Development Guide 2
Honey has long been valued by the people of Uganda, and until recently, most honey was eaten at home or marketed informally. Since the 1990’s there has been an increase in the volume of honey being packed in jars and marketed as table honey in shops and supermarkets. This trend is driven by the increasing urban demand for honey and for reliably clean food. In response, there has been a growth in the number of businesses engaging in honey packing and there are new ones starting up all the time. There is little, easily accessible information to guide them, and many are operating without advice.
This Booklet is for any person, company or beekeeping group currently packing honey for wholesale or retail sale, or interested to start a honey packing business. The Booklet does not contain all the information that such a business requires but it does introduce the important topics and explains where additional information can be found.
