The Beekeeping Association of Serbia (SPOS) has invited beekeepers for a preliminary application of honey for sale through the “Nas med” (“Our Honey”) facility. They are inviting application of unlimited amounts of forest and acacia honey, which, as they say, will be sold at decent prices.
Soon after this was announced, the purchase price of acacia honey increased at other buyers, which SPOS says is a direct consequence of the invitation made by the facility in Raca, according to their website.
The SPOS facility is able to offer the best price because it is owned by SPOS beekeepers and operates without profit. More precisely, all the profit is built into the price, they say.
– The price that the facility will pay for forest honey is fixed and known in advance. It is 5.5 euros per kilogram. As for acacia honey, the price cannot yet be specified, as the price in the market is constantly growing, primarily because this was the worst season for the black locust tree in Hungary in the past 50 years. The price will not be lower than 4.6 euros – the press release says.
SPOS expects the price to soon grow if the current market trends continue.
Beekeepers are invited to file data about the honey they offer as soon as possible and no later than August 10. The application, which is sent by email or post, may feature all the other types of honey they offer, because agreements on other types of honey will also be signed in the upcoming period, SPOS says on its website.
