The Nigerian Export Promotion Council (NEPC) has disclosed that Nigeria can generate over $10 billion from local and international trade in honey and other beehive products.

Director-General/Chief Executive Officer of NEPC, Mr. Olusegun Awolowo, who said this in Ikom during a one-day export workshop and mini exhibition on “honey production and packaging for export,” said the demand for honey and other beehive products were on the rise globally and the nation has to take advantage of it.

Awolowo, represented by Regional Co-ordinator, South-South, Mrs. Azuka Ikejieofor, said it was their belief that bee production and export potential was a quick-win product that should be targeted for intensive development and promotion.
