Armenia has been included in the list of countries that are eligible to export honey to European Union (EU) countries, Armenian Agriculture Ministry State Service on Food Safety reported.
The EU Directorate-General for Health and Consumers (DG SANCO) has approved Armenia's "Plan on the Quantity of Residue in Honey and Beekeeping Products," which is a prerequisite for honey exports.
To note, honey production in Armenia reduced almost ten times in 2012 and amounted to about 100 tons because of the weather conditions. The past year was extremely unfavorable for the beekeepers. To compare, over the previous years the volume of honey production in Armenia was 1000 tons for year.
