Beekeepers in Jawzjan Concerned Over Declining Honey Market

The decline in honey sales in the markets of Jawzjan has caused concern among beekeepers in the province.

According to them, the economic problems of the country's citizens are one of the reasons for the decrease in honey purchases.

Adil Shah, a 35-year-old in Sheberghan, has started a beekeeping farm with an investment of 600,000 afghani, to support his family's living expenses.

He says that although he had a good honey harvest this year, he has not been able to sell it yet.

Adil Shah told TOLOnews, "We harvested 500 kilograms of honey, but so far we haven't been able to sell even 10 kilograms. One of the reasons is the influx of foreign honey into the market, which sells for 100 to 200 afghani, ruining our honey market."

Some residents of Jawzjan say that locally produced honey is cheaper and of higher quality compared to imported honey, and citizens should support domestic products.

Shahrokh Joyenda, a resident of Jawzjan, said, "Our domestic honey is of higher quality than the honey imported from foreign countries. We should use our local honey as it is better in both quality and price."

Emal Haidari, another resident of Jawzjan, added, "Local honey is better than foreign honey and contributes to improving our economy."

However, the Jawzjan Department of Agriculture, Irrigation, and Livestock pledged that there are plans to boost domestic production and support beekeepers in the province.

Samiullah Hakimi, head of livestock services at the Jawzjan Department of Agriculture, Irrigation, and Livestock, said, "We provide technical and professional support to those who establish beekeeping farms, and we will also offer financial support through the Ministry and the Department of Agriculture."

According to the officials of the Jawzjan Department of Agriculture, Irrigation, and Livestock, there are currently three active beekeeping farms in the province.
