Namrata Khanna, Director, India Honey Alliance, said, “Of late, India has become one of the world’s most important honey markets because of the huge beekeeping potential that the country possesses. Therefore, the holistic development of the beekeeping sector is of utmost importance. The sector has immense potential to benefit the farming community on a large scale by creating a sustainable income for beekeepers and generating employment for landless farmers too.”
