Dominican honey exports straight to Europe starting 2016
Santo Domingo.- The Dominican Republic will export honey to the European market starting 2016 without intermediaries, an activity in which more 3,454 local beekeepers depend on.
Agriculture minister Angel Estevez made the announcement Tuesday, and noted that until now the Dominican Republic exported the honey through Puerto Rico.
In a statement by the Agriculture Ministry, Estevez said the European Union´s (EU) authorization allows direct honey exports because it meets the economic bloc´s sanitary requirements.
