Honey can be a major source of income in the Solomons
Quoting the Solomon Star newspaper ï¿½ 26 July 2019
ï¿½BEE-KEEPING can be a major source of income for Solomon Islanders.
ï¿½Thatï¿½s according to Dr Yue-Wen Chen, one of Taiwanï¿½s foremost experts in honey-bee, who had been in the country in the last eight days.
ï¿½You have some of the best honey-bees here in the world,ï¿½ Chen said before he flew back to Taiwan yesterday.
ï¿½All you need to do is improve and increase your production,ï¿½ he added.
ï¿½Retail price for a 150ml bottle of honey, which used to be $50 some months back, is now between $90 and $100.
ï¿½This was largely driven by high demand for the product.ï¿½
