Honey quality and marketing in Ghana

Perspectives for honey production in the tropics: proceedings of the NECTAR symposium held in Utrecht, 18 December 1995: 53-66

Honey quality and marketing in Ghana

In Ghana, honey hunters exploit the honey bee (Apis mellifera adansonii) as well as various species of stingless bees for honey. Methods of harvesting and processing always have a direct relationship to the quality of the honey. Traditional beekeepers still rely much on harvesting and processing methods like those used by honey hunters.
