Experts talk up Guyana’s beekeeping sector at Montreal conference

Expert international assessments of the quality of honey being produced in Guyana and the potential of the product for holding its own as an important money earner in the agro-processing sector more than justifies “far greater official attention and support from government,” Vice President of the Guyana Apiculture Society (GAS) Linden Stewart has told the Stabroek Business.

During an interview with this newspaper earlier this week, Stewart said that his conviction that stronger official support for the local honey sector could see it make a significant international footprint derived from GAS’ participation in the September 8th – 12th 46th Apimondia International Apicultural Congress in Montreal, Canada.

Stewart, along with GAS’ Treasurer Aubrey Roberts and Janice Fraser, a longstanding member of GAS, were Guyana’s representatives at the Congress.
