About Beekeeping

Beekeeping in Tanzania

Beekeeping in Tanzania plays a major role in socio-economic development and environmental conservation. It is a source of food (e.g. honey, pollen and brood), raw materials for various industries (e.g. beeswax candles, lubricants), medicine (honey, propolis, beeswax bee venom) and source of income for beekeepers.

It takes the concepts from the branches of sustainability; the environment, the economy, the needs of present and future generations, bees’ biodiversity, higher quantities and qualities of bees’ products into the local and global market.
