The Nigeria Export Promotion Council has trained over 250 bee farmers in Benue State in modern methods of beekeeping that will enhance the production of natural honey that can be exported to Europe.

The Zonal Controller in charge of Makurdi Zonal Office, Mr. Anani Ben-Egon, while declaring the training open, said the lack of strict sanitary requirements that could guarantee the safety of honey for human health was responsible for the inability of Nigerian bee farmers to export the product to Europe.

Fellow Nigerians, are you aware that our crude oil will soon become useless? Yes, it will, in no distant time, become valueless owing to the fact that the countries that rely on it as their only source of energy are developing more affordable alternative sources of energy. When this finally happens, what will we do? How are we currently preparing for this imminent economic doom? Which other sector will continue to stabilize our economy? Nigerians, the only solution is developing the agricultural sector. In fact, this is the only solution. Very soon, the major source of revenue will become agriculture and agro-exports. How are you positioning yourself to play big in agro-export business? Why don’t you get a practical manual that explains the stages of export trade from processing and packaging of commodities to receipt of payment by the foreign buyers? Yes, arm yourself with the contemporary trends in export trade. This manual explains export operations, export management, export documentations and methods of payment in export trade?

He added that aside health and sanitary requirements restricting Nigeria honey export to the EU, inadequate production of honey in the country also accounted for low exportation.

Egon said, “The global honey trade is worth $240bn with China maintaining the lead as the world exporter with 11.3 per cent of global export of natural honey in 2017 worth $270.7m. The continuous engagement with product/industry associations, farmers’ groups and other relevant stakeholders will enhance the production of honey in the country that would be suitable for export to the EU market.”

The state coordinator, National Committee on Export Promotion and Benue Exporters Cluster, Dr. Lawrence Barki, stated that there could be no better time than now to encourage bee farmers in Nigeria in line with the Federal Government diversification policy on the development of non-oil sector of the nation’s economy.
